8 wayz in wich sanitation impact in communities of south africa
Providing adequate sanitation facilities for the poor remains one of the major challenges in all developing countries. [ An estimated eighteen (18) million South Africans or three (3) million households do not have access to adequate sanitation facilities. Those who have inadequate sanitation may be using the bucket system, unimproved pit toilets or the veld. In addition there is a disturbing increase in poorly designed or operated water-borne sewerage systems, especially in urban areas. When sanitation systems fail, or are inadequate, the impact on the health of the community, on the
health of others and the negative impact on the environment can be extremely serious as witnessed by the 1.5 million cases annually of diarrhoea in children under the age of 5 and the recent outbreaks of cholera. Inadequate sanitation facilities and infrastructure combined with unhygienic practices represent South Africa’s sanitation problem. The unhygienic practices are clearly the results of: lack of health and hygiene awareness; lack of sanitation facilities inadequate water supplies; poor facilities for the safe disposal of waste water and other domestic waste; and inadequate toilet and hand washing facilities. ]
