The Pro-poor guideline policy is to deliver basic sanitation for the poor and vulnerable in the Country. The document was developed by the Ministry of Sanitation and Water Resources with support from Stakeholders in the sanitation sector.

Sanitation being one of the biggest challenges in the Country was one of the contributing factors which was considered in developing the document. The guidelines is to ensure inclusion, equality and sustainability in providing directions for stakeholders to adequately reach the poor and the vulnerable without undermining community and cohesion in building their own latrines.

The document will also serve a working document and provide direction and guidance for all stakeholders in the Sanitation and hygiene in Ghana. The guidelines is available for download here
