DISTRICT ODF BRIEF
With 203 communities, the Ho West District, created out of the Ho Municipality in 2012, had declared 12 communities ODF as at July 2018, representing 6% achievement. The district has set 2020 as the target date to end open defecation in every community.
Like most other districts in Ghana, the Ho West District is implementing CLTS, Sanitation Marketing, and promotion of savings towards household latrine acquisition through the formation of Village Savings and Loans Associations.
UNICEF is currently the main partner supporting the district to stop open defecation and use household toilets.
