Abstract: The perceived access to sanitation facilities for most urban slum dwellers in developing countries may have similar or varying viewpoints from the gender context. To comprehend such gender differentiations, this paper presents an analysis of results from a cross-sectional survey conducted in 2010 from 50 randomly chosen slums in Kampala. The findings show that sanitation has a greater effect on women than men. Gender positively correlated (Pearson chi-square values < 0.05) with the type of toilet facilities used (shared and private toilets) and satisfaction. The variables such as having separate toilet rooms for males and female, water for hand washing after using a toilet and a toilet room having a big space were also important gender attributes.
