Bed nets treated with a safe chemical killer still provide significant protection from malaria-carrying mosquitoes, despite the rise in insecticide resistance. A five-year, five-country investigation, coordinated by the World Health Organization (WHO) with financial support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, is the most comprehensive evaluation ever to assess the impact of insecticide resistance on essential control tools targeted against malaria-carrying mosquitoes – primarily long-lasting insecticidal nets, or LLINs, which have played a central role in cutting malaria cases and deaths worldwide since 2000.
