Kenya: Risking rape to reach a toilet: Women's experiences in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya

By Amnesty International, , Index number: AFR 32/006/2010

More than half the residents of Nairobi live in informal settlements and slums. Their housing is inadequate and they have little access to clean water, sanitation, health care, schools and other essential public services. This deprivation hits women and girls particularly hard. In this document Amnesty International calls on the government to ensure adequate access to toilets, bathrooms and policing in four particular slums. The government of Kenya must respect the right to adequate housing in all of Nairobi, not just in middle and high income areas.
