The present study aimed to develop a situational analysis of the sanitary conditions of the houses of the quilombola
familiesregistered in the Cadastro Único for Social Programs of the Federal Government (CadÚnico). For this purpose,
the CadÚnico family database for the year 2016 was employed, available by the former Ministry of Social
Development, now the Ministry of Citizenship. Descriptive statistical analyzes of five variables related to basic
sanitation and one socioeconomic variable were carried out. The results show that the main form of water supply for
the quilombola families is through wells or springs (45.29%), there is still a large portion of households that don't have
channeled water (44.99%), bathroom or toilet (28.64%), and adequate destination of domestic sewage (7.85% have
open sewage and 60.18% use rudimentary latrine), the household waste collection service doesn't exist in 70.58% of
the households, and most of the residents burn or bury the waste in the soil. It was observed that a large portion of
familias lived in extreme poverty (71.82%). Comparing the results by locality (urban or rural) it is observed that there
is a clear asymmetry access to basic sanitation services, being the best condition in urban locations. Families living in
the North and Northeast regions are those who live with the worst sanitation conditions and should be prioritized as
the focus of interventions. Thus, the present study indicates that even with the aid of goverrnent programs and public
policies, a large part of quilombola families still live with inadequate sanitary conditions.
