Abstract

The study essentially examined the equity in accessing long lasting Insecticidal Treated Nets (LLIN) in Chanchaga Local Government Area of Niger State, Nigeria, using primary source of data. About 1007 households were sampled using systematic sampling technique; however, the first household was randomly selected using a table of random number. Thereafter, every 5th house was selected for the study. Location quotient analysis was employed in order to determine the proportion of the population to LLIN accessibility so as to determine the equity in the LLIN distribution. The study area was stratified into eleven political wards using data such as household number in each ward, the number of LLIN in each household across the ward. The result show that 84% of the sampled households have LLIN ≥ 1.0 and 16% of the entire households has LLIN ≤ 1.0. The study is therefore recommending an improvement on the distribution of the LLIN in the study area
