The Peace Corps traces its roots and mission to 1960, when then Senator John F. Kennedy challenged students at the University of Michigan to serve their country in the cause of peace by living and working in developing countries. From that inspiration grew an agency of the federal government devoted to world peace and friendship.

LLINs

What is a Long-Lasting Insecticidal Net (LLIN)?

An LLIN is a mosquito net impregnated with insecticide.

The insecticide is cleverly bound within the fibres that make up the netting and is 'slow released' over a 4-5 year period. Hence 'long lasting'.

Nets: 6,550 LLINs
When: Jul-Aug 09
Distributed by  PCV    PCV


6,550 nets will be distributed in 11 related distributions in approximately 40 villages to achieve blanket coverage of all sleeping spaces. Universal coverage, as this is called, is shown to have a dramatic impact on malaria transmission rates as it starves the malaria-carrying mosquitoes of a blood meal and leads to a significant decline in their population.
