Being part of the GOPA Group, EPOS belongs to one of the strongest consulting groups in Europe.
Clients, Donors and Partners
EPOS’ business activities are traditionally rooted in donor-financed international development cooperation, which at present provides 90% of the overall business volume. However, new and innovative business fields in the framework of non-donor financed health facility consulting have been successfully added to EPOS’ portfolio in recent years.
Our clients comprise the whole range of health care institutions, from Ministries of Health and insurance funds, regional and local authorities, to primary, secondary and tertiary health care providers. Ultimately, it is the benefit of health care users which we have in mind when designing and implementing our projects.
The company provides services to all major institutions involved in international cooperation, including multilateral organisations such as the European Union, the World Bank, the Asian Development Bank, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (GFATM), and bilateral organisations such as the KfW Development Bank, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), Agence Française de Développement (AFD), Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA), the Australian Government's overseas aid programme (AusAid), the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) and the European Investment Bank (EIB).
EPOS is also part of the German Healthcare Partnership (GHP), a joint initiative of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the Federation of German Industries (BDI) which pools the world´s most reputed health experts and suppliers of medical equipment for the purpose of providing health infrastructure in developing and emerging markets.
EPOS has a broad range of partners such as universities, consulting firms and NGOs. However, EPOS maintains complete neutrality in professional consulting and project implementation. The company’s independence ensures that client interests are given absolute priority.
