IVCC is a product development partnership established to promote the development of public health pesticides and information systems to support their use in disease endemic countries.  IVCC uses the funds raised from donors such as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, to achieve the development of products that would not otherwise be commercially viable through collaboration of industrial and institutional partners.  Through this collaboration with all the major public health insecticide suppliers, IVCC has developed a robust portfolio of development projects spanning the pipeline from completely new active ingredients to reformulations of insecticides for longer lasting effects.
