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: 20,000 LLINs
When: Nov 09
Distributed by  Red Cross    Red Cross


20,000 nets will be distributed in a series of related distributions to achieve blanket (universal) coverage of all sleeping spaces in Mpinga-Kayove Commune in Rutana Province. Approximately 40,000 people will be protected by these nets.

Universal coverage has been shown to cause a dramatic reduction in the malaria-carrying mosquito population as the mosquito dies if it is unable to get a blood meal every 10 days.
