Abstract: Access to clean shared facilities fundamental to health and social well-being to millions of people living in urban slums in most developing countries. This study assessed behavioural factors (risks, attitudes, norms, ability and self-regulation) for improved after-use cleaning habit of shared latrines in Kampala slums. A before-and-after study was conducted between 2012 and 2013 in three slums in Kampala, in which shared latrine user’s cleaning habit and the behavioural influencing factors were assessed. The findings after testing behavioural interventions consisting of discussions and commitment showed that there was an improvement in individuals’ after-use shared latrine cleaning habit from in the discussions (Mean difference = 0.26) and discussions plus commitment (Mean difference = 0.35) compared to the control population (Mean difference = 0.17). The improvement in cleaning habit was through individuals’ awareness of their vulnerability to getting diseases, involvement of latrine sharing families in cleaning, personal cleaning norm and commitment.
