CREC LSHTM News: CREC/LSHTM ACHIEVES OECD GLP COMPLIANCE FOR VECTOR CONTROL PRODUCT EVALUATION ON 16TH JANUARY 2019

ABOUT US

The CREC-LSHTM Collaborative Research Programme is a research partnership set up in 2003, between the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine in the UK and the Centre de Recherche Entomologique de Cotonou held at the Ministry of Health in Benin. The partnership has extensive experience in the evaluation of vector control products (mainly long-lasting insecticidal nets and Indoor residual spraying) to WHO standards. It is part of PAMVERC (The Pan-African Malaria Vector Research Consortium) and its research activities are largely funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) through the Innovative Vector Control Consortium (IVCC), the WHO and chemical companies to a lesser extent.

We test malaria vector control products such as Long Lasting Insecticide Nets and insecticides for Indoor Residual Spray developed by chemical companies We perform both laboratory assays and field trials.

Vision & Mission

The CREC/LSHTM Collaborative Research Programme is a vector control product testing facility with a mission to provide the highest quality data on the efficacy of insecticidal products for use against vectors of human disease in line with guidelines set out by the World Health Organisation (WHO). The Facility aims to combat vector-borne diseases through the identification of a new generation of efficacious vector control products. CREC/LSHTM Facility is striving to be a world leader in generating accurate and reliable data on the efficacy of vector control products in WHO evaluation studies.


EXPERIMENTAL hut station

A total of 37 experimental huts of the WHOPES West African design belonging to the CREC/LSHTM Facility have been constructed at the two experimental hut stations.
