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: Jul-Aug 11
Distributed by  Concern Universal    Concern Universal


20,000 nets will be distributed in some 250 villages in the Ntcheu and Dedza districts to achieve blanket coverage - coverage of all sleeping spaces. By protecting all people when they sleep at night form the malaria-carrying mosquitoes that bite typically between 10pm and 2am the effect on malaria cases in the community is expected to be dramatic.
