Vector Control

IVCC’s mission is to facilitate innovative approaches to preventing vector-borne diseases by directly targeting the vector which transmits the disease.

Where vector control has been consistently applied in the past (2010-2015), the results have been impressive, with 78% of averted clinical cases of malaria being attributed to insecticidal treated nets and Indoor Residual Spraying (IRS). However, the success of vector control tools is threatened by the development and spread of insecticide resistance.

IVCC is working with a range of partners to facilitate the development of novel and improved public health insecticides, formulations and products to address these challenges.

Malaria is caused by Plasmodium parasites, which are spread to people through the bites of infected Anopheles mosquitoes.

Malaria can, and often does, have a devastating effect on the health, well-being and prosperity of people and communities in malaria-endemic regions.

Neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) are a diverse group of diseases that affect people living in tropical and subtropical conditions.

Populations living in poverty, without adequate sanitation and in close contact with infectious vectors are the worst affected.
