Administrative divisions[edit]

Fromager was divided into two departments: Gagnoa and Oumé.

Abolition[edit]

Fromager was abolished as part of the 2011 administrative reorganisation of the subdivisions of Ivory Coast. The area formerly encompassed by the region is now Gôh Region. Gôh is one of two regions in the first-level Gôh-Djiboua District.
