The Menace of Open Defecation and Diseases in The Nadowli-Kaleo District, Ghana
      Stephen Ameyaw, Felicia Safoa Odame
Abstract: A good sanitation practice is very imperative in human lives. Hence, defecating openly is a bane to human health killing children under five years in every 15 seconds. Efforts made by philanthropists to ameliorate this canker proved futile while there are still one billion people defecating openly globally despite the pragmatic strides. In Ghana, for instance, US$290 million is spent on open defecation yearly when the government needs US$79 million to combat the menace.
