Akeso uses scientific evidence and practical business approaches to ensure sustainable impact and fiscal responsibility for all clients we serve.

We provide our clients with:

  • Technical expertise that may not exist in-house.
  • Multidisciplinary teams of consultants to complete assessment, evaluation and planning projects.
  • Rapid response and completion of high-quality deliverables to meet urgent deadlines.
  • Cost-efficient approaches for short-term assistance without adding to ongoing payroll burdens.
  • A mechanism to engage individuals quickly and on a temporary basis when needed to facilitate rapid program scale up or emergency response.

Akeso’s Senior Partners carefully screen potential consultants before adding them to our roster. All of our consultants have advanced degrees and their areas of work and expertise cover a wide variety of fields. Akeso’s Senior Partners match consultants to the needs of clients, and to the extent possible aim to place local consultants, reducing the cost to the client. Senior Partners supervise the work of consultants throughout the contract agreement, and ensure that Akeso’s work is of the highest quality.

We are structured in such a way that we can respond quickly to our client’s needs. We can often have a team in the field in less than two weeks, and our in-country consultants can respond quickly and with confidence using their local knowledge and experience.
