Welcome to the Central Region; home of Ghana’s rich historic heritage and educational hub.
REGIONAL ODF BRIEF
The Central Region of Ghana contains 20 districts. These are made up of 1 metropolitan, 6 municipal and 13 ordinary districts. The region recorded one of the fastest rates of ODF conversion between 2017 and 2018, from 3 to 100 communities in a year! After initial struggles to turn communities ODF, some District Management and CLTS staff have recently discovered a workable trick to achieve the needed change.
Districts such as Asikuma Odoben Brakwa, Ajumako Enyan Essiam, Gomoa East, Assin South, Komenda Edina Eguafo Abirem among a couple of others have all recorded a number of ODF achievements. Some of the districts, notably Komenda, Edina, Eguafo Abirem, also keenly apply both enforcement and education to fight open defecation.
Major partners supporting the Central Region include UNICEF, Global Communities, the IDA, and World Vision, SNV and Plan.
DISTRICT ODF RATES
The Central Region has no official records on district level ODF rates at the moment. The Region also has not yet published any inter-district ODF League Table.
