Our clinic stocks “RID” Tropical strength insect repellent
Available in aerosol, pump and roll on canisters. This insect repellent contains 19.5% DEET making it suitable for protection against vector borne disease (eg: malaria, dengue fever, etc.). A kids roll on is also available.
Good hand hygiene is accredited as a first line prevention for getting sick! When soap, clean water and suitable clean drying cloths are not readily available these water free hand gels combat the germs that cause illness.
Hang-able mosquito nets
These mosquito nets are impregnated with an insecticide making it a Life Long Insect Net by the standards set by the World Health Organisation. This means that the insecticide in these nets will last the lifetime of the net despite repeated or continuous use and washing. The nets are available in single and double sized as well as compact versions of both. For exact dimensions and weight see one of our travel staff.
Self-Supporting mosquito net
These nets erect in just seconds and contain an ‘built-in’ support frame rendering the need to find something to hang the net from obsolete. The net can be adjusted for single or double use and contains re-enforced eyelets for pegging the net down should it be required. The net fabric is also treated with an insecticide that will remain effective for up to 3 years with appropriate care.
Designed to keep insects away from the face and neck; these nets sit on top of your head or hat and effectively protect skin that may not have been typically covered.
