We understand that short-term technical assistance can provide a unique perspective, which is often needed to solve problems in national health and education systems. We have a strong internal quality assurance scheme to ensure technical support is consistent and reflects best international practice. Due to our approaches and success rates, we have developed a strong reputation for exceptional short-term technical support.
We work closely with clients who may need a single consultant or a team of experts to address a complex problem requiring diverse technical expertise. We focus not only on the technical job, but also on the processes within which the job is situated – ensuring that it has impact. We deliver on time, and always quality control our technical support. Our clients include country governments, bilateral and multilateral development agencies, and global health initiatives.
