Achieving and maintaining universal coverage with long-lasting insecticidal nets for malaria control
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 widely by people at risk of malaria.
This document provides recommendations on how to achieve and maintain universal coverage with LLINs, in line with the Global Technical Strategy for Malaria 2016-2030. Universal coverage for malaria vector control is defined as universal access to and use of appropriate interventions by populations at risk of malaria.
It supersedes the WHO recommendations for achieving universal coverage with long-lasting insecticidal nets in malaria control published in September 2013.
