  1. Household sanitation in Uasin Gishu District in Kenya.

    Article - En anglais

    In rural Uasin Gisbu District in 1990, 78.2% of the housebolds had pit latrines, 11.3% ventilated improved pit latrines, 0.8% water-borne and 9.7% with no toilet facilities.

    On Inspection, 97% of the toilet facilities were in use.

    Compost pits were present in 52.3% of the housebolds.

    Utensil drying racks were found in 56.0% of the housebolds.

    Compared to previous estimates, these levels represent a tremendous improvement in sanitation service coverage.

    It is recommended that the impact of wafer and sanitation programmes on health status needs to be evaluated.

    There is a need for studies to be done on the value of utensil drying racks in disease control.
