Authors: Financing Alliance for Health
In 2018, the Financing Alliance for Health produced a series of fact cards providing key information on health landscapes, financing, and community health systems across eight countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, including Ghana.
The Ghanaian government transitioned to a multi-party system in 1992 and has remained one of the more stable governments in the region, allowing for a more organized health system. The community health system in Ghana includes Community Health Planning and Services, or CHPS, who deliver community-based health services, such as preventive care and education, to Ghanaian communities. CHPS is funded by national and local governments, individual donors, and the private sector. Annually, CHPS operating costs are nearly $370 million.
