How LLINs work to reduce malaria
Insecticide-treated nets to protect people by providing a physical barrier against mosquitoes and a chemical barrier that kills mosquitoes coming into contact with the net.
Insecticide-treated nets kill mosquitoes and when used by a majority of the target population, provide protection for all people in the community, including those who do not sleep under nets. High coverage of insecticide-treated nets can achieve community-wide benefits that effectively reduce malaria transmission.
How Resistance Impact LLINs efficacy
- As insecticide resistance develops, current vector control tools, including LLINs, become less effective.
- When the insecticide on nets no longer kills mosquitoes, mosquitoes can bite through the net and the community effect that protects people not sleeping under nets is lost.
- There are now mosquitoes with potent resistance mechanisms that can survive up to 1700 times the concentration of insecticide that kills susceptible mosquitoes.
- Warning signs of control failure include blood-fed mosquitoes inside LLINs or mosquitoes resting on newly sprayed walls.
- Insecticide: Metabolic resistant mosquitoes break down the insecticide.
- PBO: PBO blocks metabolic enzymes, allowing the insecticide to kill the mosquito.
The right tool in the right place
Pyrethroid resistance is threatening the efficacy of LLINs and jeopardizing the larger public health goal of eliminating malaria. Even if universal coverage of LLINs was achieved, it has been estimated that the impact of pyrethroid resistance will result in an estimated death of 260,000 children under 5 years of age each year, with an additional 55 million cases of malaria not averted each year in the African region alone.
Switching to PBO nets can prevent 500 more cases per 1000 people per year over a standard net (an additional 70-80% reduction in a setting of 10% malaria prevalence and 80% LLIN coverage), effectively reducing malaria transmission.
