Our story

At IVCC we’re passionate about finishing the job we were set up to do. These videos tell some of the story.

  • Every Person Matters

    The work we are doing is vital. Lives are being saved now through Vector Control, and many lives are at risk if we do not achieve our goals. Every life saved makes a difference. Every life lost diminishes us all—each one could be a Mandela, a Mozart, or an Einstein. Every person matters: every single one.
  • Bridging the Gap

    IVCC together with its agrochemical partners has identified three totally new anti-malarial insecticides and is to bring them into final development. But there is a funding gap of $50-100 million to finish the job. Many companies have business interests and major markets in the areas affected by malaria and healthy employees, customers and communities are really important to them. So are the Corporate Social Responsibility benefits enough to get a handful of companies to contribute $5-10 million over a few years to help bridge the gap?

  • Insecticide Resistance: the Tipping Point

    Anti-malarial insecticides are widely recognised as one of the most important elements in the battle against malaria. But mosquitoes are developing resistance to the insecticides that are available, and this is becoming a serious issue. That's why developing new anti-malarial insecticides quickly is so essential to world health.

    What is Vector Control and why is it important to global public health?
  • Why do we need 3 new anti-malaria insecticides?

    Insecticide treated bednets and indoor residual spraying have dramatically reduced malaria deaths and sickness. But they depend on only four classes of insecticide for IRS and just one, the pyrethroids, for bednets. Find out why we need more than one new class of anti-malaria insecticide to replace them.
  • Introducing IVCC: fighting malaria

    IVCC was set up to find new ways to control the mosquitoes that transmit malaria, dengue, and other deadly diseases. This is our story.
  • Crossing the finish line

    We are nearly there. After extensive work by our industrial partners we are at the point of selecting several new classes of insecticides for final development. We have got this far with the help of many. We need you to help us cross the finish line.

    Good point @adilbhatti_ @wellcometrust I'll pass this on to our experts for consideration.

    It's clear that pregnant women are disproportionately affected by #malaria due to inhibited immune system. Is there a biological bias?
  • 2 weeks 1 day
    Strictly speaking a question about sex rather than gender. Stripping out all the gender cultural biases- is there any evidence of bias?
  • 2 weeks 1 day
    Burning question at #APPMG about gender and malaria. Do mosquitoes bite women more than men? I.e.: is there a biological difference?
