JOB DESCRIPTION

About Acasus

We are a consultancy that drives major reforms in health and education around the world.

In health, we contribute towards improving global immunization rates. To date, we have supported governments across Asia, Africa and South America to radically increase immunization coverage and improve access to basic healthcare facilities, prenatal and maternity clinics in remote areas. In education, our projects in South America and the Middle East have successfully provided access to basic education for millions of children.

We work in teams to support senior government officials (typically at ministerial or prime-ministerial level) in driving rapid reforms. This includes:

  • Planning and developing strategies

  • Monitoring progress

  • Leveraging on data and other information to facilitate decision making

  • Building capacity and skills throughout the public system

  • Improving coordination and cooperation between stakeholders, funders and governments

  • Solving problems and challenges on the ground

  • Consolidating international evidence and lessons about what works

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 been engaging in health and education reforms since 2013. Our Pakistan team achieved the fastest increase in vaccination coverage ever recorded — improving coverage of life-saving child vaccines across the Punjab province from around 50% to 90% in just two years. In Peru, our team aided the Ministry of Education with crucial reforms to refine teacher performance and consequently helped increase students’ academic results. Our expanding teams in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia and Mozambique are working hand-in-hand with the Ministries of Health to improve nationwide availability of basic vaccines. Results are already proving very positive.

An international organization has asked Acasus to replicate this success across multiple countries in Africa and Asia, Chad being one of them.

Role​ in Brief

You will support officials at federal and regional level to implement the reforms based on our previously successful model. This implementation uses technology and data to help managers and leaders take rapid action to improve health outcomes by providing better public services.

This work will involve supporting officials at central and provincial levels to implement a customised version of our reform model. This model will involve using technology and data to help managers and leaders take rapid action to improve healthcare delivery in Chad.

The ​Challenge

  • Work with key senior government health officials, and international partners, to dramatically improve health outcomes for kids

  • Design and implement new systems for improving vaccination coverage across Chad
