Our project teams consist of experienced consultants from leading international consultancies and highly talented, locally-hired staff. The success of our projects depends on the dedication, development, and excellent work of our teams.
Context & Impact
Acasus has supported health and education reforms since 2013. Our team in Pakistan achieved the most rapid increase in vaccination coverage recorded to date — improving the coverage of life-saving child vaccines across the Punjab province from 50% to 90% in just two years.
In Peru, our team aided the Ministry of Education with crucial reforms to improve teacher performance. These reforms led to a significant increase in student outcomes.
Following the success of our programs in Pakistan and Peru, we have been requested by an international organization to replicate our model in multiple countries across Africa and Asia. Our growing team in the Democratic Republic of Congo is working alongside the Ministry of Health to improve nationwide availability of basic vaccines. Early indicators are already showing promising results.
