Access to water and sanitation is vital for achieving the sustainable development goals. The study analyzed household access to water and sanitation in the rural communities in the southwest, Nigeria. Data were sourced from 400 households using stratified systematic sampling technique. Both descriptive and multivariate analysis was employed for the data. The result shows that borehole is the predominant source of about 31.5%. Majority of the households 23% use an open pit latrine. Only 50.8% and 48% of the households have access to water and sanitation respectively. Test statistics indicate a significant difference between the regions and access to water and sanitation at p< .000. The factor analysis explained 65.25% of the total variance. The study concluded that household size, income and poor water supply and sanitation facilities are the major factors affecting access to water and sanitation in the area. Investment into water and sanitation infrastructure was recommended.
