Royal Sentry LLIN


Fighting against malaria and saving lives

Malaria kills a child somewhere in the world every 60 seconds

Malaria infects at least 500 million people each year, killing one million. Ninety percent of those who die are in Africa, where malaria accounts for about one in five of all childhood deaths. It afflicts primarily the poor, who tend to live in malaria-prone areas in dwellings that offer few, if any, barriers against mosquitoes. The disease has serious economic impacts in the communities it affects, slowing economic growth and development and perpetuating the vicious cycle of poverty.

The best defense for people living in malaria-prone areas against contracting the disease is to sleep under a Royal Sentry® long-lasting insecticide treated net (LLIN). Royal Sentry® is an extra strong, extra durable, ready-to-use mosquito bed net made from high density polyethylene (HDPE) monofilament yarn that incorporates alpha-cypermethrin, a safe and effective insecticide.

Royal Sentry® LLIN products provide up to 5 years of continuous malaria protection and offers the most economical choice among all LLIN products. Royal Sentry® LLIN products provide 30+ wash durability and regain full efficacy within 24 hours of washing. Unlike some other HDPE LLINs, no special heat treatment is required to stimulate regeneration of active insecticide.

Millions of children have died from malaria because they were not protected by an insecticide-treated bed net, or did not receive effective treatment. If we expand malaria control programs, and invest what’s needed in R&D, we can stop this tragedy.
