The role of industry in product/technique development


In this step, we join Dr Nick Hamon as he discusses the role of industry in vector control. Dr Hamon is the Chief Executive Officer of the Innovative Vector Control Consortium (IVCC). IVCC is the only Product Development Partnership (PDP) working in vector control.

IVCC brings together partners from industry, the public sector and academia to create new solutions to prevent disease transmission. This is achieved through the focusing of resources and targeting practical scientific solutions, accelerating the process from innovation to impact. In this video, Dr Hamon draws on his experiences with IVCC to explain the need for industry partners in vector control, and how industry collaboration can lead to the successful implementation of control interventions.
