Sanitation in peri-urban areas in Africa

The sanitation situation in the poor peri-urban areas in Africa is extremely bad. The inhabitants of these areas suffer from inconvenient, dangerous and unhygienic sanitation. The relevant utilities in these cities have no or very little involvement in sanitation in the poor peri-urban areas where the houses are not connected to sewerage systems. The absence of safe and private toilet facilities at walking distance has a significant negative impact on the dignity, health and well being of the inhabitants.

The relevant utilities in these cities have no or very little involvement in sanitation in the poor peri-urban areas where the houses are not connected to sewerage systems. The absence of safe and private toilet facilities at walking distance has a significant negative impact on the dignity, health and well being of the inhabitants.
