ILM at a glance

Institut Louis Malardé (ILM) is French Polynesia’s public research institution. Based in Tahiti, ILM originates from an initiative launched in 1949 by William Albert Robinson, an American naval engineer, navigator and writer, in his attempt to fight lymphatic filariasis, a mosquito-borne disease which affected many Tahitian homes. Over the past 70 years, ILM has worked to improve and preserve the health, and well being of Pacific Island communities and their environment, with a focus on clinical diagnosis, non-communicable diseases (diabetes), food safety, mosquito vectors and the infectious diseases they transmit (dengue, Zika, chikungunya, lymphatic filariasis, etc).

Nos éfforts de conservation englobent le monitoring, la préservation, les programmes de restauration liés à la biodiversité marine et terrestre des îles tropicales et à la préservation de l'héritage culturel. Tetiaroa Society sponsorise un projet de l'institut Louis Malarde qui explore des méthodes innovatrices, plus éfficaces et plus sûre pour l'environnement pour contrôler la population de moustiques.
