Ghana has been using the Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) approach since 2010 and adistrict wide ODF has been difficult to achieve. Nandom district in the Upper West Region of Ghana seems to be on a promising path towards achieving the status. The Sustainable Sanitation and Hygiene for All (SSH4A) programme implemented by SNV, The Netherlands Development Organisation and Eight district Assemblies in Ghana has been a ladder the Nandom district leans on striving to achieve a district wide ODF status. The SSH4A Programme, funded by DFID integrates best practices in sanitation demand creation, supply chain strengthening, hygiene behaviour change communication, governance, gender and social inclusion. Nandom district is poised to being first to be declared ODF with only eight communities remaining. Over 50,000 new people have access to improved sanitation in the district accounting for an 80% coverage. This writeup show cases key lessons learnt which would be used by government and developmental partners to optimize and sustain future outcomes.
