AAF is an independent charitable trust based in South Somerset. It was set up in 1999 with the aim of enabling the poorest rural communities in Eastern Kenya to have access to the essentials of life that we take for granted and have done for generations.

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'.

Gai/Itivanzou, Kenya  

Nets: 3,700 LLINs
When: Nov-Dec 06
Distributed by  AMREF/Akamba    AMREF/Akamba


Itivanzou is a rural area with a population of 1,730 people. Malaria is a significant problem here. Many at risk individuals cannot afford nets.

A blanket coverage of nets will maximize the impact of the LLINs, as the community-wide effect of reducing the local mosquito population, thus protecting non-net users as well, only applies in cases of dense LLIN coverage.
