IVCC is a not-for-profit public-private partnership that was established as a charity in 2005. Their mission is to save lives, protect health and increase prosperity in areas where disease transmitted by insects is endemic.
They bring together the best minds to create new solutions to prevent disease transmission. By focusing resources and targeting practical scientific solutions they accelerate the process from innovation to impact.
How they work:
IVCC is a Product Development Partnership. They are a small team of experts who work with a large number of other experts from all over the world.
They are only as strong as their partnerships.
The agro-chemical companies they are working with are world leaders and, with their help, they are applying all their technical expertise and experience to find the new solutions they need.
Their Experts Scientific Advisory Committees (ESACs) are a group of independent experts with substantial technical and scientific skills and experience in all aspects of product development related to their work. They initially set the criteria for new products—a Target Product Profile—which is a detailed specification for the new public health products they are developing.
So, for example, the TPP for new anti-malarial insecicides will be closely targeted to ensure they are safe for the environment and for the people who will benefit from them. The safety criteria are much higher than past standards, reflecting generally the greater concerns today for health and the environment
