2013-02-07 13:03:55 - The production of mosquito nets has increased by 14.4% in FY’2012 as compared to FY’2011 in India
New Delhi: 07/02/13: Mosquito nets are an essential product, used to prevent the habitats from mosquito bites which are a prime cause for continuous surge in malaria deaths across India. The malaria severity in India over the years has been significant, registering 1,279,381 malaria cases in FY’2011. However, the number of malaria cases registered in India has declined from 1,508,927 in FY’2007 but still demands for a major change in the planning and programs to reduce the malaria transmission in the country. Considering the acuteness of the situation, government of India has initiated several campaigns and programs under the guidance of National Vector Borne Disease Control Programme (NVBDCP) with support from Global Fund and World Bank to reduce the spread
of malaria in India. Under the programme, no untreated or normal ITNs (which are plain nets soaked in insecticides) will be distributed and that in lieu of ITNs, long lasting insecticide nets (LLINs), which generally have an effective life of 20-30 washes will be supplied across all the project areas.
The mosquito nets consumption in India has increased over the years, given the multiplying number of malaria cases across the country. Although the production of mosquito nets has increased by 14.4% in FY’2012 as compared to FY’2011 in India, but the available quantity of mosquito nets for domestic consumption after exports fell short of the demand.
According to the report titled “India Mosquito Nets Market Outlook FY’2014-Government initiatives towards universal population coverage through LLINs”, the mosquito net market in India needs a continuous distribution mechanism of LLINs across the country in order to achieve the universal coverage strategy as laid by the government of India. The government should also make initiatives to educate the people across India through radio or public campaigns organized in prominent cities of the country in the future.
