Our History

The African Genetic Biocontrol Consortium is established as an agreement among member organizations committed to the mission and goals to contribute to expanding African self-determination of the course of research, development, and use of genetic biocontrol approaches for controlling and eliminating malaria and other vector-borne diseases in Africa.

The Consortium was officially launched on 30th November 2020 by inaugural not-for- profit member organizations based in Africa. The member organizations included the Africa One Health Network (AfOHNet), Africa Biological Safety Association (AfBSA), The Multilateral Initiative on Malaria (MIM), Network of African Science Academies (NASAC), Pan-African Mosquito Control Association (PAMCA) and the GeneConvene Global Collaborative (GeneConvene).

There is value in bringing together a consortium of organizations that have the motivation and capabilities to contribute to expanding African self-determination of the course of research, development, and use of genetic biocontrol approaches for controlling and eliminating malaria and other vector-borne diseases in Africa. Different organizations have complementary strengths and relationships to contribute. Coordination and collaboration among the organizations will enable each organization to accomplish more than it would have on its own. A consortium can negotiate more powerfully with other parties (e.g., funders, global organizations) for common interests of the participants.
