Over 40% of the world’s population is affected by malaria. One child dies every 30 seconds from its effects. LINDA is a low-cost baited mosquito killer that attracts mosquitoes using carbon dioxide and human foot odor. It was designed to be used and maintained by people living in poor communities. It is intended to be used in conjunction with insecticide-treated bed nets and indoor mosquito repellants. LINDA will be sold to both governments and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), who would distribute the mosquito killers as part of the fight against the disease.
