According to the data compiled by the WHO/UNICEF Joint Monitoring Program (JMP), sanitation coverage in Ghana in 2010 was 14% (excluding shared latrines) and 72% when shared latrines are included. In rural areas, access was even lower and disaggregated as follows: improved sanitation facilities (8%), shared latrines (43%), other unimproved latrines (16%) and open defecation (33%).

This is based on a survey conducted by WASHCost Project in Ghana in three districts in Northern, Ashanti and Volta Regions.
