How to Solvie Ghana Poverty Problem Through Housing

The prerequisite to providing suitable, appropriate and equitable housing is a key primacy for every government. Because the problem of housing is intricate and unrelenting, no single nation across the world has been able to offer satisfactory housing of ample standards to all its citizens. 

In as much as housing is a basic need in life, close to half of the population in Ghana live in poor houses. Ghana housing shortage has exposed many individuals to circumstances, such as inaccessibility to adequate hygienic amenities and privation of water and warmth to meet their daily physical requisites. Ghana housing shortage has also decreased the life expectancy for the homeless. 

As a result of Ghana housing shortage, several populations have been exposed to serious health risks, thus, gravely impacting on their input in the economic development of the society, leading to high rates of poverty in Ghana. The housing shortage in Ghana has affected many populations living in urban areas to continue residing in overcrowded and unsanitary conditions. Most of the limited houses lack significant facilities, such as toilets, kitchen, bathroom, and refuse facilities.

Adequate housing is one of the effective means of solving the problem of poverty in Ghana. This is because shelter entails a significant item for households. Sufficient housing is a requirement for enhanced health, thus, encouraging savings that are spent on treatment and medication. Adequate housing is also a source of income since many people use the houses to generate income through home base businesses or renting, especially in urban settings.

In addressing Ghana’s poverty situation, improved housing condition in Ghana will enhance the provision of good living conditions. This will provide an opportunity for the poor population to come up with their own income generating ventures and they can also receive credits from micro financing corporations.

The end result of these initiatives will be a focus on building human capital. The stimulation of pro- poor growth in the nation will encourage the private sector to create jobs to supplement the government efforts. Through enhanced spending on anti-poverty measures, such as supporting the education system, infrastructure, and healthcare in Ghana, it is possible to launch a direct assault on poverty as a result of improved housing provisions.
