About Acasus

Acasus is a consultancy dedicated to helping governments implement transformational reforms in health and education. Our goal is to improve public health and education for those who need it the most. In just five years, Acasus has developed a strong reputation supporting governments across Asia, Africa, and South America. We are working on high-profile projects in the education and health sectors in Pakistan. We are rapidly expanding and also have ongoing projects in Mozambique, DRC, and Ethiopia among others. We offer high degrees of responsibility and autonomy and the opportunity to drive a truly impactful set of reforms.

Our Work

We work in small teams that support the most senior officials in government (typically at ministerial or prime-ministerial level) to drive rapid health reforms.

Much of our day-to-day work involves helping officials to:

● Plan and develop strategies

● Monitor progress

● Use data and other information

● Build capacity and skills throughout the system

● Improve coordination and cooperation

● Solve problems and challenges as they arise

● Access international evidence and lessons about what works Acasus teams include a mix of experienced consultants from leading international consultancies and highly talented locally-hired staff.

Our success depends on being able to attract good people, and then, more importantly, providing them with high-quality professional development to enable them to quickly become effective. The work is varied and ranges from office-based policy & strategy development to ground level understanding and implementation in the field.

Context & Impact

It is hard to overstate the potential impact of this work. In just Pakistan, our team achieved the fastest increase in immunization rate ever recorded — raising coverage of life-saving vaccines for the more than 2 million children born each year in Punjab from around 50% to 84%. To date, our work in Pakistan has already been highly impactful in increasing the quality of Primary care and improving the health of mothers and children. We are expanding our team, looking for undergraduates or postgraduates with up to 5 years of working experience to assist in delivering our existing projects.
