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'.

Kedougou, Senegal  

Nets: 4,000 LLINs
When: Jun-Jul 08
Distributed by  NetLife Africa    NetLife Africa


The Kedougou region of Senegal is particularly affected by malaria.

20 villages in the region will receive nets to achieve blanket coverage, meaning all villagers will sleep under a net. Blanket coverage makes it very difficult for malaria-carrying mosquitoes to find a blood meal and can reduce the incidence of malaria by between 60-90%.
