African Centre for Health Policy Research and Analysis (ACH-PRA) is a registered non-profit company limited by guarantee (No. C0009057420). It shall be run as a social enterprise, applying business strategies to achieve financial stability in support of its core aims.
ACH-PRA shall use a radically different organizational model: we shall be a virtual think tank, staffed mostly by volunteers. This model encourages the development of a decentralized organization, which takes advantage of the internet and new communication technologies to carry out activities in a more cost-effective and environmentally friendly way.
Having a virtual office allows for far lower overheads and frees the organization from a specific locality. It means ACH-PRA can start small and develop organically, while being able to adapt rapidly to future challenges.
