Abstract :

In many suburban municipalities in Sub-Saharan African countries, the water used in households comes mainly from groundwater, including wells and streams. These springs are vulnerable due to the prevailing poor hygiene and sanitation conditions, leading to the persistence and recurrence of waterborne diseases. In this research, a study on the use of water resources and an epidemiological survey on waterborne diseases were carried out among users of water points and medical institutions in the suburban communes of Selembao and Kimbanseke in the city of Kinshasa, in the DRC. The results of the survey indicate that the users of the selected water points run the risk of catching waterborne diseases, due to a lack of appropriate hygienic habits and due to high microbiological pollution. Hence the need to raise awareness among those concerned.
