Santa Ana Region
Santa Ana is a region located in western El Salvador with a total population of nearly 700,000. Approximately 300,000 people live in or near urban centers and the remaining 400,000 live in semi-rural or rural communities. Recent reports state that 23 percent of the population, or 161,000 people, live in extreme poverty (making less than $1 per day) and 46 percent of the population, or 332,000 people, live in severe poverty (making less than $2 per day). The region is diverse and has complex challenges. The urban areas are densely populated and face security issues, household waste problems, and unemployment. The rural areas are also densely populated but face critical challenges such as dilapidated roads, inadequate housing, poor health and struggling economic development.
