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'.

Maryland, Sinoe, Liberia  

Nets: 9,500 LLINs
When: Dec 07-Apr 08
Distributed by  Merlin    Merlin


Malaria is a major health problem in Liberia and consistently the top cause of morbidity (illness) at the 45 Merlin supported Ministry of Health (MoH) facilities.

Mosquito net use in Liberia is very low as nets are virtually impossible to access outside the capital Monrovia.
