Community Model for Household Sanitation: Good Practice In The Musseques Of Luanda

01/01/2007

The lack of sanitation in the peri-urban settlements of Angola’s cities
encourages open-air defecation, which in turn leads to the rapid
transmission of various diarrhoeal diseases. The mortality rate in
peri-urban informal settlements can be more than 20 times the rate in
the centre of Luanda where there is better water supply and sanitation.
Latrines are recognised by Luanda Urban Poverty Programme (LUPP) as a
solution to inadequate sanitation in the crowded cities of Angola where
there is no possibility of developing a sewage system in the near
future.
