IVCC at the ASTMH 2023 Annual Meeting
IVCC is delighted to take part in the upcoming Annual Meeting of the American Society of Tropical Medicine & Hygiene (ASTMH) in Chicago, USA from 18th to 22nd October.
David McGuire, IVCC’s Director of Access and Market Shaping, will present an overview of vector control for malaria elimination during the Alan J. Magill Malaria Eradication Symposium: Using Vector Control to Advance Malaria Elimination, on Thursday 19th October, starting at 10:15* (Grand Ballroom CDEF – Ballroom Level (East Tower)).
Led by IVCC, the New Nets Project (NNP) piloted new tools to strengthen the insecticide-treated net (ITN) market. At ASTMH, NNP Partners** will present evaluations of new, insecticide-treated net products meta-analysis of observational studies, and economic evaluations from five sub-Saharan African settings.
Supported by IVCC, Project BITE*** (Bite Interruption Toward Elimination) aims to create a toolbox of vector control products to address malaria and other mosquito-borne diseases in the Indo-Pacific Region. Hear about the most recent project findings during Symposium 43 and hear about the latest thinking when it comes to locations where traditional epidemiological data, via a randomized controlled trial or other form of study, is not practical.
Other presentations will touch on a range of IVCC projects, see the full list below. There are poster presentations, as well as oral presentations.
