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'.

When: Jan-Feb 07
Distributed by  SurfAid    SurfAid


The Mentawai Islands lie 100 miles off the coast of West Sumatra. 70,000 people live here in 203 hamlets (dusuns) in both coastal and forest jungle settings that are often extremely isolated. This isolation contributes significantly to poor health and poor health services.
