Goodbye Malaria – empowering women in Malaria programmes 22nd June 2022

Goodbye Malaria is an initiative started by African entrepreneurs who believe that today’s generation can create innovative solutions to the continent’s problems and ultimately change the way the world sees Africa. Since the turn of the century, vector control has proven to be one of the most effective strategies for reducing malaria incidence and deaths. Since 2000, more than 80% of the reduction in malaria prevalence in Africa can be attributed to indoor residual spraying (IRS) and insecticide-treated nets (ITNs).

Traditionally, men have been responsible for implementing IRS in sub-Saharan Africa. However, this traditional view is increasingly being challenged as more organisations recognize that women should play a more significant role in conducting and leading spray operations.

IVCC Annual Report 2021 6th January 2022

IVCC’s Annual report for 2021 has been published. The report showcases IVCC’s work to facilitate innovative approaches to preventing vector-borne diseases and tackle the growing threat of insecticide resistance. With activities across the globe and spanning research and development and market access, we are accelerating the process from innovation to impact. The report is a reminder of the importance of collaborative working and the progress laid out in it is a testament, too, to the commitment of our partners from industry, academia, the public sector and advocacy. We are grateful for the support of all of our funders, who make life-saving vector control possible.

Multi-site comparison of factors influencing progress of African insecticide testing facilities towards an international Quality Management System certification 6th December 2021

Insecticidal mosquito vector control products are vital components of malaria control programmes. Test facilities are key in assessing the effectiveness of vector control products against local mosquito populations, in environments where they will be used. Data from these test facilities must be of a high quality to be accepted by regulatory authorities, including the WHO Prequalification Team for vector control products. In 2013–4, seven insecticide testing facilities across sub-Saharan Africa, with technical and financial support from Innovative Vector Control Consortium (IVCC), began development and implementation of quality management system compliant with the principles of Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) to improve data quality and reliability.
