Named after Aceso, the Greek goddess of the healing process, we are a nonprofit organization committed to promoting strong health systems and affordable, high-quality care that produces better health outcomes for all
WE DO NOT PARACHUTE IN WITH A ONE-SIZE-FITS-ALL TEMPLATE. INSTEAD, WE CULTIVATE LONG-TERM RELATIONSHIPS THAT HELP US UNDERSTAND LOCAL CONTEXT.
OUR BOTTOM-UP APPROACH IS SOLUTION AND OUTCOME-DRIVEN.
WE WORK WITH PARTNERS TO DEVELOP A TAILORED AND PRACTICAL SOLUTION, AND WE HELP THEM IMPLEMENT, EVALUATE, ITERATE AND SCALE.
