LLIN Distribution Systems Toolkit

These tools present opportunities for streamlining LLIN distribution by decentralizing the delivery process. Many steps are involved and they are explained in the tools. Some comparative experiences are illustrated. Benefits include reduced costs, reduced time to availability of the LLINs, and the potential for increased ownership of the process at peripheral levels, thereby paving the way for sustained control measures.
