Background

The Ivermectin Research for Malaria Elimination Network (IVERMEN) was formed during the annual meeting of the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene in New Orleans in November 2014, when a group of academics, members of different NGOs and funding agencies met to discuss the latest evidence on the potential use of ivermectin as a malaria vector control tool.

The main goal of the group is to establish a common research agenda to generate evidence base on whether ivermectin-based strategies can add to the emerging arsenal to interrupt malaria transmission.
