His Nets focus is distributing LLINs to those who need them most: pregnant women and families with children under 5. A non-denominational organization, His Nets makes no distinction as to ethnic or religious origin when distributing nets to those who need them most.

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'.
