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'.

The Peruvian Amazon basin is a high risk malaria area. More than half of the reported 64,000 malaria cases in Peru in 2007 occurred in this region.

The nets will be distributed in a number of villages along the Upper Maranon River and its tributaries, including the villages of Napuruka, Sachapapa, Athulapa, Palestina, Belen, Ajachim, Chapis, Borja and Jerusalen, to achieve blanket coverage of all sleeping spaces.
