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'.

Senegal is particularly badly affected by malaria. A 2006 malaria survey indicated 37% of children under 5 had had an episode of fever or convulsions, clinical indicators for a case of malaria.

A two million net nationwide distribution campaign will take place in June 2009 to achieve protection of all children under 5 and pregnant women, those most vulnerable to malaria.
