number, 2004–2020

Info Edit

    With the arrival of new types of nets, the term ITN was re-introduced by the Global Malaria Programme as the umbrella term for all nets treated with an insecticide, insect-growth regulator and/or synergist. The term LLIN is only being used for ITN classes for which physical and chemical durability have been comprehensively demonstrated against the WHO thresholds of 20 washes and 3 years of use in the field. In practice, this means that only nets treated with a pyrethroid insecticide alone are presently referred to as LLINs in the WHO Guidelines for malaria vector control and companion documents.
