Malaria is a life-threatening disease caused by parasites that are transmitted to people through infected mosquito bites. It is however preventable.
Long-lasting insecticidal nets (LLINs) have played an important role in reducing the global malaria burden since 2000. They are a core prevention tool used globally by people at risk.
