Durability and Insecticide Persistence in Long-Lasting Insecticide-treated Nets in Zambia

Durability and Insecticide Persistence in Long-Lasting Insecticide-treated Nets in Zambia

Objectives

The study examines the longevity of LLINs in terms of physical integrity and insecticide persistence. LLINs distributed in two different provinces, Permanets® (Luapula Province) and Olysets® (Northern province), are followed every 6 months to count and measure holes starting at one year of age, ending at 30 months of age. Households are surveyed about net care and usage.
