ABSTRACT

Slums are inadequate multifamily tenants or rooming houses, either built to rent or

converted from some other use. The main purpose of this study was to identify the

effects of the slum establishment on the health of the local community. A total number of

140 respondents were randomly sampled. Data were collected using questionnaires and

interviews. The data collected were analyzed using Statistical Package for Social

Sciences (SPSS Ver.l 1.5) and presented in frequencies and percentages in various

graphs. The study was meant to cover the provision of health services such as safe and

clean water, waste management and vaccination as well as the response of the

government and community on poor health. The study found out that, Juba has slums in

areas of Custom and Nyakuron among others. The provisions of health services are still

poor and in some areas are inadequate. Also the study indicated that the response of the

government and community members on health services was poor and the government

can not do much in short run due to financial, administrative and political factors. There

are a number of challenges that hinder the provision of health services. These included

lack of funds, population growth, politics, and poor community participation. The study laid down recommendations to fight poor health services and sanitation.
