About Acasus

We drive major reforms in health and education on a global basis. Our ‘on the ground’ consultant teams deliver a customised delivery approach supported by our unique software applications developed in-house.

To date we have supported governments across Asia, Africa and South America to implement reforms that have dramatically increased immunization coverage and radically improved the availability of basic healthcare facilities, prenatal and maternity clinics in remote areas.

Our efforts to increase vaccination coverage are contributing to improved global immunization rates. Our education projects in South America and the Middle East have provided access to basic education for millions of children.

Our specialised software engineering team supports these projects by delivering high quality products that are used by thousands of health & education workers, major international organisations and governments.


Following recent successes, Acasus has been asked to deploy mobile and web applications in six additional countries to improve health and education reforms that are impacting millions for the better.

With this growing interest in our applications we are looking to expand our team based in Ticino, Switzerland.
