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'.

Acholi Quarter, Uganda  

Nets: 900 LLINs
When: Dec 07-Jan 08
Distributed by  Project Have Hope    Project Have Hope


Uganda is badly affected by malaria. The Acholi Quarter in Kampala is home to 10,000 people who are poor and vulnerable: virtually every mother has a child with malaria.

Working with community leaders, this distribution of 900 nets is a start to help protect them, focusing initially on children under 5 and pregnant women.
