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.
