Impact Monitoring and Evaluation Analyst (026-20) IVCC

Innovative Vector Control Consortium (IVCC) works globally to facilitate innovative approaches to preventing mosquito-borne diseases (e.g., malaria, dengue, etc.) and tackle the growing threat of resistance by directly targeting the vector that transmits disease. Where vector control has been consistently applied in the past (2010-2015), the results have been impressive, with 78% of averted clinical cases of malaria being attributed to insecticidal treated nets (ITNs) and indoor residual spraying (IRS). However, the success of vector control tools is threatened by the development and spread of insecticide resistance.
