Authors(2) :-Agmasie Bantie Kassa, Dr. Chandra Shekar K E

Before the development of insecticide treated kidsí bed nets as a new product development, people in many countries were already using adult nets, mainly to protect their kids against biting insects. It was only recently appreciated that a net treated with insecticide offers much greater protection against mosquitoes to keep away from the diseases like malaria, dengue, etc. Not only does the net act as a barrier to prevent mosquitoes biting, but also the insecticide repels, inhibits, or kills any mosquitoes attracted to feed. The main objective of this study is to access adherence to the use of kidsí bed nets in malaria and other insect prevention. The study is about designing and development of appropriate kidsí bed net design. This is done by designing appropriate kidsí bed net to capture the specific objectives of this research and included both male and female bellows five years age children with papoose product combination. It is a new product which has many salient features such as, Easy to remove and move, easy to find manufacturing facility, will have Appropriate Size and weight, easily accessible manufacturing Materials. The Performance of the bed net should be having average 25.806 Newton force tear strength. The bed net has to carry out a mesh size approximately equal to 25 holes/ cm2. This kind of bed nets are very much essential to fulfill the health needs of the mother and child for the developing countries like Ethiopia, Egypt, India, etc. hence the study gives significant information about the health concerns of the child .
