Vector Control, Saving Lives

NgenIRS at VCWG 2019

The RBM Vector Control Working Group meeting was an ideal opportunity for NgenIRS to engage with country partners and other stakeholders.

20 April 2019

The RBM Vector Control Working Group meeting was an ideal opportunity for NgenIRS to engage with country partners and other stakeholders. We took the opportunity to discuss the project’s catalytic market impact and new evidence showing the public health impact and cost-effectiveness of 3GIRS.

Two talks were presented during the meeting, one during the plenary session by Christen Fornadel (IVCC Technical Coordinator) on market access interventions - link to the presentation can be found to the right of this page, and another by Molly Robertson (NgenIRS Evidence Lead, PATH) during the IRS IRM workstream elaborating on the emerging evidence base, see link below.

You can find all the IRS and IRM workstream presentation links below:
