MALARIA PREVENTION PROGRAM
Malaria kills half a million people every year and 400 million fall ill. Before bed nets were made available, it was three or more times that. Nets are a proven intervention – a more effective a way of saving lives than any other. There is still a long way to go and every death from malaria is preventable. less
◾ 70% of the deaths are children under 5
◾ Malaria is the world’s single largest killer of pregnant women
◾ 90% of the deaths are in Africa
Yet malaria is totally preventable and treatable. Nobody need die. Prevention is better than treatment.
◾ The most effective means of prevention is sleeping under a mosquito net
◾ Specifically a Long-Lasting Insecticide treated Net (LLIN)
◾ Each net costs $2.5/€2,2/£1.7
◾ Every 50-250 nets distributed and installed equals 1 life saved

The most effective means of preventing malaria is sleeping under a mosquito net, specifically a long-lasting insecticide treated net (LLIN).
Malaria is transmitted by certain mosquitoes when they bite. These mosquitoes bite people to get a blood meal. The malaria parasite then passes from the infected mosquito to the person being bitten. They typically bite between 10 o’clock at night and two in the morning – and that’s one of the most important things we have on our side: if we can protect people in affected areas when they sleep at night we have a very good chance of preventing them contracting malaria. more
Each net costs about $2.50, lasts for 3-4 years, and protects, on average, two people.
The statistics are well known given the scale of the problem. Every 50-250 nets we put over heads and beds, one child doesn’t die.
Every single net matters.
