NEWLY RECOMMENDED BY WHO

LifeNet, MAGNet, and Royal Sentry: Interim recommendation by WHO (May 2013)

WHOPES evaluation
Insecticide products and application equipment under WHOPES evaluation
: (August 2013)

According to the August 2007 WHO Position Statement on insecticide-treated mosquito nets, national malaria control programmes and their partners involved in insecticide-treated net interventions should:

  1. purchase only long-lasting insecticidal nets;
  2. distribute free or highly subsidized LLINs, either directly or through voucher/coupon schemes;
  3. achieve full LLIN coverage, including in high-transmission areas, by distributing LLINs through existing public health services;
  4. develop and implement locally appropriate communication and advocacy strategies to promote effective use of LLINs; and
  5. implement strategies to sustain high levels of LLIN coverage in parallel with strategies for achieving rapid scale-up.
