In South Sudan, long lasting insecticidal nets (LLINs) are among the most widespread and cost-effective prevention methods used to combat malaria, which remains the leading cause of morbidity and mortality. The emergence of COVID-19 threatened to disrupt LLIN provision and other essential services, prompting a review of the global LLIN distribution methodology. To ensure that communities continued to receive LLINs in Warrap state in 2020, we implemented a range of timely and context specific adaptations and amplified our community engagement and SBC activities.
