Cost of vector control


Dr David McGuire will discuss the cost of vector control in this video, using the NgenIRS project of which he is the Programme Director as a case study. NgenIRS is a four year partnership (2016-2019), led by IVCC and funded by Unitaid, that includes the US President’s Malaria Initiative, The Global Fund, Abt Associates and PATH. This project works in close collaboration with leading insecticide manufacturers, national malaria programmes and other stakeholders to increase the use of 3rd Generation Indoor Residual Spraying (3GIRS) products. This is done by supporting insecticide resistance and management strategies throughout Africa.
