Over the weekend, I asked several Public Health luminaries some questions on Ghana’s CHPS.
Questions: Good morning, Sir. Last year, I asked several people this question:
The Community-based Health Planning and Services (CHPS) started as the ‘Navrongo Experiment’ in Ghana. I understand other countries adopted it. Please can you give me other countries that adopted it with references. Thank you.
A senior colleague responded that these countries adopted the CHPS: Ethiopia, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Burkina Faso.
I have gone through the literature but I cannot find any document on CHPS in any country apart from Ghana. Please do you have any references on countries other than Ghana that are using the CHPS that you can share with me?
Is the CHPS in Ghana is a unique healthcare system in the world, or we are doing exactly what others are also doing but with a different name? Thank you.
