Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH) for Health

Despite recent sanitation successes and the introduction of promising technologies, roughly 85 percent of Ghanaians still lack access to improved sanitation. This gap in coverage has led to recurring cholera outbreaks in recent years. Ghana is now tackling its sanitation challenges with renewed vigor, and intensifying efforts to scale up sanitation improvements nationwide with the help of the USAID-funded Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH) for Health initiative
