A consultative report on TVCAG establishment in Malawi

04 Jul 2019

The Partnership for Increasing the Impact of Vector Control (PIIVeC) programme is focused on establishing Technical Vector Control Advisory Groups (TVCAGs) in target countries (Burkina Faso, Cameroon and Malawi) to enhance integration of vector control planning and implementation. The TVCAGs are tasked to provide advice to Ministries of Health (MoH) on effective tools, strategies, and interventions in vector control and reduce the burden of vector borne diseases (VBDs). They are the main knowledge translation platform serving to strengthen the partnerships between researchers and policy makers. However, the establishment of the TVCAGs must consider contextual factors in each setting to ensure proper engagement and sustainability. Therefore, PIIVeC policy analyst Chikondi Mwendera conducted consultations with potential members of the TVCAG in Malawi to solicit views on TVCAG set up, challenges and opportunities, and sustainability.
