Akros is a cutting edge organization that establishes data-driven and technologically appropriate systems to improve the health and well-being of disadvantaged communities. We pride ourselves in our ground-level knowledge of the service delivery systems where we work, and our ability to provide novel, lasting solutions implemented in developing regions. In water, sanitation & hygiene (WASH) Akros has developed a village level surveillance system that captures live, real-time data on latrine construction, grouped handwashing, and facial cleanliness (for trachoma initiatives) and drives information back down to key stakeholders and change agents through robust feedback loops. The WASH Management Information System captures data from community volunteers on a monthly basis from across 63 districts. The Akros team has also applied these same principles to develop systems for monitoring land tenure and is interested in extending these types of systems to water resource management.
