The Akros Approach
CHOOSING THE RIGHT TOOLS FOR THE JOB
We drill down to the basics. What do you actually need? What are the tools you need to get you there without unnecessary bells and whistles?
CONTEXT IS KING
Knowing the intricacies of where you work is paramount. We involve local leadership and keep everyone involved with feedback loops.
WE DESIGN + BUILD
Not only do we design the right surveillance system for your needs, we walk along side you as the system is built and implemented.
Many surveillance systems are designed to be used for one project for a specified period of time. So that’s how they’re designed. We don’t like that. Our systems are designed to be something that can be passed along to be used well into the future.

Such tremendous strides speak to the success of preventative interventions, such as improved access to indoor […]
Reveal—spatial intelligence for planning, targeting, and real-time management of interventions in low-resource settings – A Case Study
The Denominator Challenge Accurate quantification of a population, and the ability to locate this population with precision, are fundamental requirements for reporting the true coverage and effectiveness of public health interventions—such as childhood immunizations, indoor residual spraying (IRS) for malaria, or mass drug administration (MDA) for neglected tropical diseases. Public health interventions, however, often rely […]
On a sweltering summer day in Siavonga, a lakeside jewel of Zambia’s Southern Province, I sat down with Mr. Bisael Phiri, the District Surveillance Officer for Siavonga District, to get his perspective on the malaria situation in his region and at large in Zambia. A breeze lazily floating through an open window and a small […]
