Innovative Vector Control Consortium (IVCC)

The Innovative Vector Control Consortium (IVCC) is a not-for-profit, public-private partnership whose mission is to save lives, protect health, and increase prosperity in areas where diseases transmitted by insects are endemic. IVCC targets practical scientific solutions to accelerate the process from innovation to impact, such as developing new insecticides for malaria control.

USAID provides financial support for IVCC’s vector control development work. Historically, USAID has supported two large portfolios of new insecticide development with Bayer and Syngenta; the aim is for these novel compounds, which are not currently used in public health or agriculture, to begin to be evaluated by the World Health Organization for malaria vector control by 2025. More recently, USAID has provided targeted funding to build and maintain the capacity of critical research institutes in sub-Saharan Africa for field testing of these new insecticides as they move along the product development pathway.
