Vector Control, Sauver des Vies


IVCC was founded in 2005 with initial funding and support from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. From that foresighted beginning,  IVCC has been working hard to attract new sources of funding to widen its donor support base, and has now secured ongoing funding and support from some of the world's leading innovation funders.

We are grateful for the commitment of all our funders, which enables us to move forward to the final stages of developing the much-needed new anti-malaria insecticides that will transform vector control in the coming decades.
