PermaNet® serves vector control programmes with leading solutions at scale with reduced need for repeat interventions. This contributes to the achievement of global targets through measurable health impact. PermaNet® prevents vector-borne diseases such as malaria which claims more than 425,000 deaths annually1. To date, more than 1.5 billion people have benefitted from best-selling PermaNet® bed nets.

PermaNet® bed nets employ a superior technology which enables the slow release of the insecticide deltamethrin, and require no re-treatment or dipping. They are designed to meet the evolving challenges faced by vector control programmes, and both PermaNet® 2.0 and PermaNet® 3.0 are the most tested long-lasting insecticidal nets on the market.

Insecticide Resistance a Priority on the Global Health Agenda

The Global Plan on Insecticide Resistance Management (GPIRM) was launched in 2012 by the Global Malaria Programme at WHO in Geneva. The GPIRM represents input that has been gathered and synthesized from over 130 stakeholders from all constituencies of the malaria control community. The overall goal of the GPIRM is to maintain effectiveness of vector control tools by putting forward a comprehensive strategy at the global and country levels. The need for a global database on insecticide resistance data was mentioned by several experts as critical to the successful coordination of all efforts as well as the need to develop standardised procedures for testing tools designed for use with resistant malaria vectors. Read the executive summary.

Malaria Research

IR Mapper is a tool that helps inform vector control strategies by mapping insecticide resistance in mosquitoes that transmit malaria, Zika, Dengue and other mosquito borne diseases. This helps inform vector control strategies.
