Associate Consultant​, dedicated to ​improving ​the  delivery of health services​ in the ​Democratic Republic  of the Congo

 

About ​Acasus

Acasus (www.acasus.com) is a consultancy that drives major reforms in health and education around the world.

In health, we are contributing 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. Our  education 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 (e.g.  McKinsey, Oliver Wyman, Roland Berger and others) 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 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.

These reforms leverage on the use of  technologies and data to facilitate quick and effective action by  managers and leaders. By supporting the delivery of better public services, we contribute to improving  health outcomes. To date, our DRC team has achieved a number of highly impactful quick wins,  demonstrating the opportunity for larger impact in this region.

As an Associate Consultant, you will support Acasus Senior Associates as well as central and provincial  officials in customizing and implementing our reform model in this region. You will  build on existing  insights, excitement, and engagement to strengthen the health system at a national level. This involves  strengthening data, leadership and management to help managers and leaders take rapid action to  improve health outcomes and save lives.
