Photographer's Note

Rural water coverage for Ghana is presently 57 per cent and less than four per cent of every 10 people in Ghana has access to clean water, while good sanitation is available to two out of every 10 people.

A recent nationwide survey conducted by the Ghana Chemical Society (GCS) has revealed that about 85 per cent of sachet water produced and sold in the country is not of standard quality.

The survey, which was conducted last year, relied on specifications set by the Ghana Standards Board (GSB) which included raw material requirements, physical, bacteriological and chemical requirements, virological and parasitological qualities, as well as packaging and labelling requirements for the product.
