The Sene West District was created out of the then Atebubu-Amantin Municipal in 1988. It is one of the twenty two (27) districts in Brong Ahafo Region of Ghana. The district lies within Longitudes 0o 15’E and 0o 15’W, and Latitudes 7o N and 8o 30’N. Out of the 22 administrative districts in the Brong Ahafo Region, Sene has the largest land area, which is about 8586.44 km2. The land size could be seen as a resource potential for development.
It shares boundaries with the Volta Lake and East Gonja District to the north, Volta Lake, Krachi and Jasikan districts in the Volta Region to the east and southeast, Kwahu North and Sekyere East Districts to the south and southwest, and Atebubu-Amantin District to the west.
However, the long distance from the district capital to the regional capital, Sunyani (about 241km via Tachiman and Nkoranza) poses as one of the major development constraints in the district. It is the farthest district from Sunyani, the regional capital.
A number of mental health patients in the Sene West District of the Brong Ahafo region have benefited from a free mobile outreach mental health clinic organized by MIHOSO International in partnership with Basic Needs Ghana with support from UKAID in Kwame Danso.
In order to promote quality health care delivery for inhabitants of the Sene District in the Brong Ahafo Region, the Assembly is funding the construction of a medical theatre project at the District Hospital in the area.
