UNICEF is one of the leading procurers of long lasting insecticidal nets (LLINs) for children and families. In 2011, UNICEF procured over 25 million LLINs that were distributed across 36 countries. In line with our commitment to improve transparency around the procurement of essential supplies UNICEF is publishing a retrospective of LLIN prices. This overview was prepared in consultation with our LLIN suppliers. The LLIN prices received by UNICEF from industry are based on the UNICEF mandate, UNICEF aggregated quantities, commercial terms, reliability of forecasts, timelines of payment, and long standing relationship with industry.
LLINs procured by UNICEF meet international standards of quality prescribed by the WHO Pesticide Evaluation Scheme (WHOPES). The data below covers tenders issued between 2006 and 2012, and captures information related to LLINs of 100 denier or greater in three standard sizes (expressed in centimetres) of LLINs.
