International Public Health Pesticides Workshop: Bringing New Pesticide Products to Market

Geneva, Switzerland
from 29 September to 1 October 2009

The International Public Health Pesticides Workshop: An Examination of the Barriers and Possible Solutions for Bringing New Public Health Pesticide Products to Market in Developing Countries is organized by the Secretariat of the Stockholm Convention, in collaboration with the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, CropLife International, the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the World Health Organization.

Highlights

Currently, there are barriers for the introduction of new chemicals and products to support the control of vectors that carry public health diseases such as dengue, malaria and encephalitis especially in tropical countries. At the fourth meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Stockholm Convention, the Parties took a decision to establish a Global Alliance to promote the development and deployment of alternative products, methods and strategies to DDT for disease vector control. One of the goals of this Global Alliance is: “To make available new alternative vector control chemicals”.

This International Public Health Pesticides Workshop provided a forum for regulators from disease endemic developing countries to examine the barriers, capacities and solutions for increasing the efficiency of registration of new Public Health Pesticides toward stimulating the marketing of new PHP products. 

Background

At the fourth meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Stockholm Convention, the Parties took a decision to establish a Global Alliance to promote the development and deployment of alternative products, methods and strategies to DDT for disease vector control. One of the goals of this Global Alliance is: “To make available new alternative vector control chemicals”. The two pathways for realising this goal are: “Bring to market new formulations of existing pesticide classes equally effective as DDT in vector control”; and, “Address the issue of barriers to discovery and commercialization and bring to market new active ingredient classes to counter vector resistance in the long term”. This workshop investigated these pathways to achieving this goal of the Global Alliance.

Purpose

The International Public Health Pesticides Workshop provides a forum for regulators from disease endemic developing countries to examine the barriers, capacities and solutions for increasing the efficiency of registration of new PHPs toward stimulating the marketing of new PHP products.

Participants

Approximately twenty-seven selected pesticide Regulators from a wide cross-section of disease endemic developing countries. Presentations were entertained from individual specific key stakeholders (approximately 13) including related experts from developing countries, industry, competent authorities in developed countries, philanthropic organizations, NGOs, IGOs and Donors. In total, participation included approximately forty persons.
