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 village of Sumbe in Cameroon is badly affected by malaria.

The distribution of the 240 nets will lead to a blanket covering of all sleeping spaces and is expecetd to lead to a dramatic fall in the incidence of malaria.

Background: Co-workers of a former village member, now living in the USA, have raised funds so all in the village can be protected at night.
