This report was generated from a study into the cost of water and sanitation services received by the inhabitants in Kokoshie Gonja in the East Gonja District of the Northern region of Ghana.
Kakoshie Gonja community, with a population of 657 has three formal water point systems, two of which are reliable (working 95% of the expected time within the past 12 months). A majority of the respondents (80%) were receiving a good service in terms of quantity of water accessed. The community has no public or institutional latrine and none of the respondents in the community has a household toilet. Due to that, everyone in the community practises either open defecation or dig and bury. [authors abstract]
