USAID Systems for Health is supporting the GHS in implementing the new national Community-based Health Planning and Services (CHPS) policy in two underserved regions (Northern and Volta) by constructing and renovating CHPS compounds and health facilities. In 2018, the project built 18 new CHPS compounds. In total, 26 new CHPS compounds are now complete, including being equipped with necessities ranging from tables, chairs, beds, and cooking stoves in the residential buildings to forceps, scales, and medical examination couches in the clinical buildings. All facilities have been handed over to the Ghana Health Service for operations.

Systems for Health also completed renovations for 27 health facilities in 2018, and 23 more are under construction and will be completed by the end of December 2018.
