History edit

From 2000 until the 2011 administrative reorganisation of the subdivisions of Ivory Coast, the territory that is now Gôh constituted the first-level division Fromager Region. At the reorganisation, the territory was renamed Gôh and combined with Lôh-Djiboua to form the new first-level division Gôh-Djiboua District.

Departments edit

Gôh Region is currently divided into two departments: Gagnoa and Oumé.
