The last few months have been exciting for us! We recently received four years of funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to support a project in Malawi called Kuunika: Data for Action.  ("Kuunika" means to bring the light in the local language, Chichewa). This project focuses on improving supply of and access to HIV and health data and use of data for decision-making. We work hand-in-hand with the Government of Malawi and a strong group of technical partners to improve effectiveness and efficiency in the health sector and HIV response. For more info, check out the project brochure.  

We’ve also been recently asked to serve as advisers to Canada’s Minister of International Development. Specifically, we will be assisting with strategic planning, dashboard and data visualization, and policy guidance.  

In addition, we’ve moved into new offices in the heart of downtown D.C. and have brought on dynamic, hard-working new talent (check our Staff Bios to find out more).  

So lots of new events and changes here at Cooper/Smith!

We're a new company with a strong mission and we can't wait to share more about our work and focus. Stay tuned to this page for updates, ideas, pictures, random streams of consciousness, and more.
