World Bank Country Director for Ghana, Liberia and Sierra Leone, Henry G. R Kerali has said the World Bank is committed in ensuring that open defecation would be a thing of the past in Ghana.

According to the World Bank Country Director, there is the need for a collaborative effort and working together and placing sanitation issue on a high priority.

He made this remarks at the opening of a three days urban sanitation forum ongoing in Accra on the theme, “Taking Urban Sanitation Solutions to Scale”.

Mr. Henry G. R. Kerali further pointed out that one key challenge Ghana has to face is dealing with sanitation problems and the World Bank is providing funds for households toilet at subsidized amount.

Again there should be better coordination among various agencies and local authorities dealing with sanitation issues in Ghana, he said.
