Auteur(s) et Affiliation(s)

Univ. of Ghana, Accra, Ghana


Description :
This article examines urban health vulnerabilities in Accra, Ghana, in the context of urbanization. Using multiple research techniques, this study highlights how such neglected necessities consign sections of the population to one of the deadly infectious diseases Ghana has ever known—cholera. The paper calls for an all-inclusive and explicitly pro-poor community-led orientation as one of the effective strategy for achieving equity in the urban settings and possibly, helps win the ‘war’ on poor sanitation.
