This report was generated from a study into the cost of water and sanitation services received by the inhabitants in Old Kokobriko in the Bosomtwe District of Ashanti Region, Ghana.

Old Kokobriko community with a population of 694 has two formal water systems of which one is reliable. Due to this, everyone in Old Kokobriko is receiving a sub-standard (“limited”) service.
The community has one public toilet (traditional pit latrine) and an institutional toilet (Kumasi Ventilated Improved Pit (KVIP)) which are patronised by a majority of the people in the community, about 84%. This provides only 4% of the inhabitants have access to improved sanitation service based on the WASHCost framework.
