The Upper Denkyira East Municipal Assembly WASH and NTD master plan provides an integrated approach to the provision of WASH services in a manner that simultaneously mitigates the incidence/prevalence of skin related NTDs (yaws, buruli ulcer and leprosy) through the achievement of safe and sustainable water and sanitation for all. The plan was developed in a participatory manner with stakeholders from the Municipal Assembly, representatives from regional government and the focal persons from the national programmes for NTDs from the Ghana Health Service.
Based on consultation with key stakeholders in the Municipal Assembly the context was assessed to establish gaps and to jointly create a vision for 2030 and to set strategies to achieve the set targets for the following subsectors: water services, sanitation services, WASH in Schools, WASH in health care facilities and NTDs. Cost estimates, including elements of the life cycle costs approach, have been established for all these subsectors.
