Distributed by Global Minimum (Gmin)

Gmin is a small group - 4 people initially - that aims to punch above its weight. Our current focus is providing long-lasting insecticidal nets to achieve blanket coverage in a number of villages in the east of Sierra Leone. More about us on our website.

What is a Long-Lasting Insecticidal Net (LLIN)?

An LLIN is a mosquito net impregnated with insecticide.

The insecticide is cleverly bound within the fibres that make up the netting and is 'slow released' over a 4-5 year period. Hence 'long lasting'.

Distribution

The Malen Chiefdom is a rural area situated about 90 minutes west of Pujehun Town. The estimated population of the chiefdom is 23,520. The chiefdom has 10 sections and the distributions will be in four of these sections with an estimated population of 11,412. The smallest of the ten sections has 1,637 inhabitants and the largest has 3,846. Locals are engaged in sustenance farming.

Sierra Leone is a malaria endemic region, this area has many rivers, swamps and irrigated fields for rice farming. Thus, this is an optimal breeding location for mosquitoes. In addition, local people consider malaria a very significant problem. The UNICEF-developed Multi-Indicator Cluster Survey for the Pujehun region puts the malaria prevalence rate at 35-45%.
