USAID WASH UP AND WASH FOR HEALTH

Funded by USAID, Global Communities implemented both the Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) for Urban Poor (WASH-UP) project from 2012 to 2016 in Ghana as well as the Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) for Health project. Both WASH-UP and WASH for Health aimed to accelerate sustainable improvement in water and sanitation access and improve hygiene behaviors in the target districts. WASH for Health will see over 700 communities in the 30 districts in the Northern, Volta, Greater Accra, Central, Eastern and Western Region benefiting from various WASH interventions. To achieve the overall goal to provide sanitation to the target districts, the project’s objectives are to: increase use of improved household sanitation; increase community water supply services; improve sector governance and policies; expand key hygiene behaviors; leverage private-public partnerships to magnify the impact of the USG investment; and improve water supply and sanitation infrastructure for schools and health facilities. During the course of the project, it is expected that: 290 boreholes will be developed to augment community water supplies; 40 institutional water supplies will be completed for public schools and community-based health planning and services (CHPs) compounds; 140 latrines will be provided for institutions; and by using the CLTS (community-led total sanitation) approach, residents in communities are expected to construct a minimum of 10,100 family/household latrines and for 640 communities to reach open defecation-free (ODF) status.
