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'.

Ghana is very badly affected by malaria.

Navrongo, in the north, has year-round transmission. On average people receive 418 infective bites per year which is very high.

12,000 nets will be distributed in four related distributions around the Navro-Pungu area achieving blanket coverage of the 22,000+ population before the high transmission season of July to November.
