Story title: Public toilets in perspective
Story summary: In her report Gifty Andoh Appiah highlights the appalling state of public toilets in Ghana. She doesn’t shy away from an unpleasant subject. She spends a night with residents to show the audience uncomfortable images, and offers the perspective of an elderly resident to thoroughly depict the health risks posed by the lack of sanitation. The report was a timely reminder to the political elite as it aired just prior to the elections at the end of 2012.
