Photo of the week, September 7th

The number of infrastructurally isolated communities in Ghana is much larger than most people realise.  As we will explore in the coming weeks, there are  many communities far from easy road access, power, piped water, telecoms, education and health facilities.  Not only are these communities far from a tarred road, they are far from a latterite road and, in many cases, far from a road that even a 4x4 is comfortable on.  Here we see one of the many hundreds of the Volta lake-communities, homes far removed from easy access to the infrastructure necessary for sustainable socio-economic growth.  Photo courtesy Medicine on the Move
