The Ghana News Agency (GNA) press release on the launch of Asutifi North Ahonidie Mpontuo (ANAM) or District WASH Full Coverage Start-up Initiative in Asutifi North was republished on 20 March 2018 in MyJoyOnline.com and GhanaWeb.com.
The press release included several quotes from IRC Ghana County Director Vida Duti who said "the country was making slow progress in achieving set targets for goal six of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)". Speaking about ANAM, "Ms Duti said it required collective efforts and cooperation to ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all". "Ms Duti noted that water and sanitation coverage in the Asutifi North were worsened as only three percent of the District population had access to safely managed drinking water and 23 percent access to basic sanitation, hence the implementation of the initiative". Vida "appealed to stakeholders from government, civil society and non-governmental organizations, private sector, service providers and users as well as traditional authorities and the media to support the initiative to achieve useful outcomes".
