The Central Regional Office of Environmental Health says it is developing a league table that will show performance of various district assemblies in the region in terms of their sanitation management.
The assessment which will be held quarterly aims at encouraging various district assemblies to work harder at improving sanitation in the region.
The Acting Regional Environmental Health Officer, Paul Nutsugah tells ATL FM News his office is yet to determine the rewards and punishments for the ranking.
“With the sanctioning mechanism we are now looking at it because it has to be in line with the procedures of engagement of the officers on duty…but for the praising and reward of assemblies who excel at maintaining good sanitary practices there will be a durbar to appreciate such assemblies”.
He said the districts will be assessed on two parameters including open defecation and general sanitation efforts.
“There are two parameters that we will be looking at and one of them is the issue of open defecation. Then there is also another league table that would be looking at the proper environmental sanitation of public places…so we have developed about fourteen thematic areas that we would want to assess the district assemblies on”.
