Overview

This document was developed by the Global Malaria Programme as a response to enquiries from WHO Member States and partners engaged in Long Lasting Insecticidal Nets (LLIN) distributions. It is based on consultations with various partners, individuals and institutions with relevant expertise in this subject. Information on the fate of LLIN packaging is still insufficient and therefore this document only provides recommendations pending further research and evidence. This guidance addresses the specific question of what should be done with the LLIN waste packaging left from LLIN distribution.
