In many developing countries such as Uganda, the problem of poor sanitation has been

registered among households especially in high density residential areas of urban centre.

Poor sanitation is manifested through unsafe disposal of human excreta, unhygienic water

sources, poor solid waste management.

Uganda, using Kansanga parish Makindye division Kampala city as the case study, aimed

to find out the sanitation facilities available in Kansanga parish, the factors responsible for

the poor sanitation on the people in Kansanga parish and possible measures that could be

taken to improve on the sanitation levels in the area.

and these included KCC and NWSC officials, households, Teachers or Students. Out of the

100 questionnaires only 60 were brought back and 20 respondents were interviewed, there

for the study used 80 respondents. Data was collected using observation, photography,

questionnaires and interviews.
