Akros is a small, woman-owned business located in Lusaka, Zambia. Akros establishes data-driven, technologically appropriate information systems to improve the health and well-being of disadvantaged communities. Akros works hand-in-hand with government to develop and implement solutions which ensure ownership and sustainability. In WASH, Akros revolutionized data collection and use through development of a village-level surveillance system that captures real-time data and drives information down to stakeholders and change-agents through robust feedback loops. The Akros team applied these same principles to develop systems for monitoring land tenure, IRS structure tracking for malaria prevention, school-based sanitation and student performance, and participation of AYGW through HIV programs.
