General information

Following WHO recommendation, only Long Lasting Insecticidal Nets (LLIN’s) which require no further treatment during their expected life span (of average 3 to 5 years according the use, type and fabric origin) should be purchased. LLIN’s allow a better and effective protection against mosquitoes and other insects and have to be considered as part of an overall strategy related to malaria control, as impregnated nets decrease the morbidity from between 50%-70%.

There are different types of netting material (polyester, polyethylene, and polypropylene). The most commonly used for LLIN, and for which WHO recommendations have been developed, are polyester (PES) and polyethylene (PE).

In the WHO Position statement document for Insecticide Treated Mosquito nets, the WHO recommends a move away from polyester made nets.

http://www.who.int/entity/malaria/publications/atoz/itnspospaperfinal.pdf Below shipment information is given for mosquito nets made of 75 denier material. All shipping volumes indicated are approximate, as they depend on number of nets per bales.

WHOPES (WHO Pesticide Evaluation Scheme) approved LLIN on:

It is important to keep in mind that "LLIN" does not mean "WHO approved". Many wholesalers propose LLINs which are not WHO approved, and should not be supplied.
