The Innovative Vector Control Consortium (IVCC) is a product development partnership that develops new insecticides for vector control and researches ways to use existing pesticides more effectively.[1] IVCC was established in 2005[2] and became registered as a nonprofit in 2008.[1] Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine is the parent organization of IVCC.[3]

Partnerships and work[edit]

IVCC has partners across both public and private sectors, including in industry and academia, and with funders, non-governmental organizations, and nonprofits.[4] These include NGenIRS and Innovation to Impact as well as with companies including Syngenta.[5]

It has also partnered with the Armed Forces Pest Management Board to discuss improvements to indoor residual spraying as well as devising new methods of vector control.[6]

It funds the Malaria Decision Support System project in Malawi.[7] It also funds other projects that focus on malaria and dengue control.[8]:151

Organizational structure[edit]

Funding[edit]

IVCC was originally funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation with a grant of $50.7 million over five years.[1] In 2010 the Gates Foundation awarded it a grant of $50 million to continue its work.[2] In May 2016, it was granted an additional $75 million by the Gates Foundation.[11]

IVCC has also been funded by UKaid, USAID, the Swiss Agency for Development, UNITAID, and Wellcome Trust.[12]
