Malaria is a treatable and preventable disease, yet it kills a child every two minutes.
After decades of progress in which the number of malaria cases has almost halved to half a million deaths a year, this positive trend has stalled. This calls for continuous distribution of long-lasting insecticidal nets (LLIN), a highly effective tool to combat malaria, as well as new solutions to arising challenges such as insecticide resistance.
Introducing Moon Netting
Moon Netting is a new net manufacturer that employs the latest technology to create more affordable and more efficacious insecticide treated mosquito nets to protect people living in malarious regions.
When the sun sets and the night falls, malaria transmitting mosquitoes go out on a hunt for their blood meal potentially bringing malaria parasites with them. Mosquitoes are the deadliest animals in the world and while their buzzing is annoying, their bites can be life-threatening. Malaria is caused by parasites that are transmitted through the bites of infected female anopheline mosquitoes. Our nets serve as a physical and mosquito killing barrier, providing safe cover and a good night’s sleep.
Tsara – our product range
Our product range is called Tsara, which means ‘to protect’ in Hausa, a local language spoken in west Africa. The name was suggested by our Nigerian colleague, whose mother tongue is Hausa.
The product naming process demonstrates the company’s culture of inclusiveness, entrepreneurship and commitment, in which we aim to create an equitable organization. Each individual of our diverse and multinational team has the opportunity to contribute to shaping the success of our company.
