Open defecation continues to be a critical health challenge globally, affecting almost 1 billion people worldwide and contributing significantly to an estimated 842,000 people who die yearly from sanitation-related diseases.

In sub-Sahara Africa, 200,000 children under the age of five die from diarrhea annually, while the numbers dying from cholera within the region are similarly high because of poor sanitation, hygiene practices, and unsafe water supplies

In 2019, Ghana was ranked second after Sudan in Africa for open defecation, with almost 5 million Ghanaians not having access to any toilet facility. Ghana’s sanitation situation remains a major challenge.
Though there have been efforts from successive governments and development agencies to curtail the situation, much has not been realized especially in the area of open defecation.
The Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey 2017/18 reveals that

  • Over 13 million Ghanaians representing 45% use shared facilities. The high proportion of this population is mostly concentrated in low-income urban settlements.
  • 22% of Ghanaians still practice open defecation. This is especially more rampant in rural Ghana with about 4.2 million people (representing 31% of rural population) engaging in this practice. About 1.8 million (representing 11% of the urban population) equally practice open defecation.

Based on the analysis of the MICS 2017/18 data, we estimate a minimum of 3.0 million new improved latrines/toilet facilities are needed to attain the Sustainable Development Goals for sanitation by 2030.
Also, while potential market players exist to facilitate the sales and distribution of SATO pans, the market is characterized by low volume / high margin

The brand has enjoyed considerable sales since its introduction. The brand has been supported with distribution and marketing of the brand especially in the Q4 of 2019.
