File Type: PDF | File Size: 281.99 KB
The USAID Systems for Health project supports the Ghana Health Service (GHS) in implementing their Community-based Health Planning and Services (CHPS) model, which is designed to increase access to health services and promote universal health care. Technical support helps the GHS, communities, district assemblies, and other partners to advance along 15 steps of CHPS functionality.
In the Northern and Volta regions of Ghana, Systems for Health is also constructing and renovating health facilities to eliminate geographical barriers to care. The first 8 newly built CHPS compounds are complete. Another 18 are under construction, as are renovations on 19 facilities. Community engagement before, during, and after construction ensures that the CHPS compounds become fully functional, deliver quality care, and are used by the community.
