Project Mosquito is a collaborative project between BTC and POL and the Kenyan based Akado Medical Clinic. The project's focus is the alleviation of endemic malaria in the Suba District of Kenya. The clinic is provided with long lasting mosquito bed nets (LLINs) which the staff distributes to orphaned and vulnerable children and pregnant mothers in the Suba District.

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'.

Malaria is endemic in Mbita Township where humidity favours mosquito breeding. It is the leading killer of children and pregnant mothers in the area, accounting for 35% of child deaths. These deaths are entirely preventable.

The level of insecticide treated nets in the area is very low or negligible.
