In 2018, ANAM presented a District WASH Master Plan with an ambitious goal – to reach 52,000 people, every person in Asutifi North district. The aim is to provide everyone with basic services and 32,000 people with safely managed water services and to ensure that all 90 schools and 12 health care facilities have safe and sustainable water, sanitation and hygiene facilities. The plan is supported by a detailed investment strategy.
Since the launch of the plan, the Asutifi North District Assembly and ANAM partners have made significant progress.
