The Problems

Widespread WASH Needs
60% of assessed households in Burkina Faso face significant WASH-related needs. Critical water access issues, tensions at water points, and unimproved sanitation facilities are prevalent, posing severe risks to public health. Unimproved sanitation facilities pose serious public health risks, increasing the likelihood of disease outbreaks.

 Severe Healthcare Deficiencies
3.6 million people are potentially deprived of medical aid. They lack access to essential healthcare services due to ongoing conflict and displacement. The inadequate WASH facilities exacerbate health risks, compounding the healthcare crisis, and the healthcare system is under severe strain, with over.

Economic Instability and Food Insecurity
65% of displaced households need reliable income sources. Over half of these households (57%) resort to crisis or emergency coping mechanisms, which severely impact their ability to afford food and essential services, leading to increased vulnerability and long-term socio-economic challenges. The economic situation for displaced households is particularly dire, leading to widespread food insecurity.

Addressing these challenges requires the government, civil society, and the private sector to coordinate efforts. Strategies should focus on improving access to quality education and healthcare, promoting youth employment and entrepreneurship, enhancing political participation and governance transparency, addressing gender inequality, bridging rural-urban disparities, and implementing sustainable environmental policies. Investing in youth empowerment and development is essential for Ghana’s sustainable development and future prosperity.
