Attention: ZIKA!

WHO and PAHO urge to mobilize control measures against Zika, Dengue, and Chikungunya. Since Brazil reported the first cases of local transmission of the Zika virus in May 2015, it has spread to 26 countries and territories of the Americas and the Pacific region. With the Zika so rapidly spreading, along with an increase in cases of microcephaly and other adverse outcomes among infants, and Guillain-Barré syndrome in adults, the Anti Malaria Fashion Foundation can provide an immediate solution in personal protection to address this public health emergency.

Mozzie Armor® and Mozzie Armor® Textile are novel vector control nano-technology products of the Anti Malaria Fashion Foundation (AMFF), developed in response to the urgent call to stop transmission of mosquito-borne diseases such as Malaria, Zika, Dengue, Yellow fever, and Chikungunya, and are available immediately. These products impregnate clothing and textiles with a Long Lasting repellent effect. The repellent used in the formulation is IR3535, which is WHO and EPA approved repellent and is safe for pregnant women and children from 6months of age.

Aedes aegypti, the primary vector of Zika, Yellow fever, and Dengue, and Anopheles mosquito, the primary vector for Malaria, become increasingly resistant to commonly used insecticides, i.e. Permethrin, Deltamethrin, and DDT, in numerous locations throughout the world. No mosquito resistance developed to IR3535.

Mozzie Armor® is a liquid product designed for simple and easy treatment of clothing with the repellent. Clothing can be treated manually or by using the softener cycle of a washing machine. Protection is effective for 20 washes. There is no other textile treatment available today which gives the ability to treat your own clothes with the mosquito repellent.

Mozzie Armor® Textile is a product for the industrial finishing of textiles with mosquito repellent qualities; could be used in work, military and school uniforms, and for functional fashion. This industrial grade product creates textiles which are repellent for up to 100 washes. There is no other repellent textile treatment available today which can treat continuous yardage of textile.

The Anti Malaria Fashion Foundation seeks partners and funding to extend this revolutionary personal protection against mosquitoes to all populations affected by Malaria, Zika, Dengue, Yellow fever and Chikungunya.
