About the International Consortium on Anti-Virals
ICAV is a not-for-profit organization founded just after the SARS outbreak in 2004 in the belief that building partnerships with academia, the public health sector, governmental agencies and for-profit companies is the best preparation for the next unexpected infectious disease outbreak. In particular, ICAV is focused on developing therapeutic platforms that can address multiple infectious diseases and bringing these to patients in low and middle income countries. In May 2014 ICAV became a formal initiative of the York Institute for Health Research.
