Abstract

The Issues of Households Sanitation and Child morbidity cannot be over emphasized; as it relates to the understanding of how these factors influences the health of children. Therefore, the research tends to examine Household Sanitation and Child Morbidity as its impact on Child’s Health survival. The objective of the study basically aims at examining the effect of Household conditions on the child’s health, assessing the relative importance of Distal determinants on household sanitation, and to ascertain the influence of Home safety precaution on the health of children in Nigeria. The study which sets out to empirically investigate the relationship between Household Sanitation and child morbidity in Nigeria uses the 2008 NDHS data for women. A univariate and multivariate analysis was done to analyze the effects of the predictors, making use of the Two way analysis of variance to determine the effect of household condition on child morbidity, a linear regression to determine the effect of Home safety precaution on child morbidity, and finally a Binary regression to show the influence of Distal determinant on child morbidity. In Nigeria today, the present situation of sanitation calls for a very serious reflection on her errors of judgment or neglect, and a determination to take the necessary and bold remedial steps clearly focused on adequate investment on proper sanitation. The study recommends that there is the need to devote more attention to helping the individuals of each household in Nigeria to ensure proper sanitation and ensure good health.
