Why nets?

Long-lasting, insecticidal bed nets (LLINs) are a simple, cost-effective solution to protect families from malaria while they sleep. They create a physical barrier against malaria-carrying mosquitoes, and the insecticide woven into the nets kills the mosquitoes before they can transmit the disease from one person to the next.

Today, approximately 53% of the population in sub-Saharan Africa is protected by bed nets, compared to just 2% in 2000. We work with our UN partners and local governments to identify areas of greatest need and purchase the nets to distribute to families. These partners and local governments have expertise in accessing remote, hard-to-reach areas.

Beyond the Nets

Household Spraying

Indoor residual spraying is the targeted use of insecticides sprayed on the indoor walls of homes. Each spraying can protect families for 6 months to one year by killing household mosquitoes.

Malaria Testing & Treatment

Diagnostic testing, mainly using microscopes or rapid diagnostic tests, allow health workers to identify and treat malaria quickly. Malaria is curable if it is treated in time with an effective drug. The main medications used to treat malaria in sub-Saharan Africa are Artemisinin Combination Therapies (ACTs).

The Malaria Vaccine

The RTS,S malaria vaccine is currently being considered as a complementary malaria control tool that could potentially be added to – and not replace – the core package of proven malaria preventive, diagnostic and treatment interventions. There are several more effective vaccines currently in development.
