W niniejszym artykule zaprezentowano model środowiskowych zachowań sanitarnych w metropolii Ibadan w Nigerii. Aby przeanalizować czynniki wpływające na badane zachowania, dokonano doboru próby mieszkańców w dzielnicach mieszkalnych miasta. Zidentyfikowano następujące czynniki: warunki społeczno-ekonomiczne, cechy mieszkańców, dostęp do usług i urządzeń higieny środowiskowej oraz porozumienie co do ćwiczeń na rzecz higieny środowiskowej. Wyniki badań ukazały, że ćwiczenia związane z higieną środowiskową były istotnym i statystycznie znaczącym czynnikiem ((R2 = 0,971) oddziałującym na środowiskowe zachowania sanitarne w Ibadanie, natomiast pozostałe czynniki odgrywały znacznie mniejszą rolę z oddziaływaniem na poziomie 2,9%. Wyniki te sugerują, że higiena środowiskowa w Ibadanie to raczej rezultat ćwiczeń aniżeli systematycznej praktyki. Działania były wykonywane wskutek regulacji prawnych, a zatem inicjowane przez rząd. Implikacją badań dla sfery praktycznej i politycznej może być konieczność reorientacji higieny środowiskowej i wzmocnienia pozostałych czynników na nią oddziałujących. (abstrakt oryginalny)

This study modelled residents' environmental sanitation behaviour in Ibadan metropolis, Nigeria. To examine the factors influencing environmental sanitation behaviour, residents were sampled across the residential areas of the metropolis. The identified factors were residents' socioeconomic background, residential characteristics, access to environmental sanitation facilities and services, and agreement with environmental sanitation exercise. Findings revealed that environmental sanitation exercise was a strong and statistically significant predictor (R2 = .971) of environmental sanitation behaviour in Ibadan metropolis while other factors were trailing behind with 2.9% contribution. These findings suggest that environmental sanitation in Ibadan metropolis was mainly an exercise rather than a practice. It was law-driven, and therefore mostly governmentinitiated and motivated. These findings have implications for practice and policy making by highlighting environmental sanitation reorientation and strengthening of other identified factors of environmental sanitation behaviour in the metropolis.
