The use of Long Lasting Impregnated Nets (LLIN) is still a problem in Senegal despite the efforts made by the National Malaria Control Program (NMCP) and the partners to ensure its availability. The main objective was to study the factors linked to the use of LLIN in the ‘dahras’ at the health district of Darou Mousty. A cross sectional, descriptive and analytical study on the talibés and the marabouts, was carried out at the health district of Darou Mousty from December 31, 2015 to January 4, 2016. Data were collected at the dahra level using a questionnaire for each target. The questionnaires were administered by individual interview after informed consent. The data covered socio-demographic and environmental characteristics, knowledge of malaria and the LLIN, as well as the usefulness of the latter and the use of other means of protection. The data were entered and analyzed with EPI INFO software version 3.5.3 with a 95% confidence interval. In total, 400 talibés and 40 marabouts were enlisted. The mean age of the talibés was 10.7 ± 2.6 years; the sex ratio M / F of 15.7. LLIN availability was 36.8%, LLIN utilization rate was 33.9%. The use of LLINs was statistically linked to the seniority of the talibés in the dahra (p = 0.03), the female sex (OR = 10; CI = [1.4- 25]), the place of sleeping (p = 0.0029), the information received on the LLIN by the talibé and the marabout with respectively (OR = 4.2; IC = [1.3 - 17.9]; OR = 3.6; IC = [2.1 - 6.3]), the ‘Ndiguel’ received from the marabout (OR = 1.8; CI = [1.1 - 3.3]), the talibés' knowledge of the usefulness of LLIN as a means of elimination of malaria (OR = 2.7; CI = [1.5 - 4.6]), knowledge of the talibés of the mode of transmission of malaria (OR = 1.8; CI = [1.0 - 3, 3]), the use of spirals and insecticides. The use of LLIN in the dahras requires strengthening the knowledge of the talibés and marabouts on malaria and LLIN, its mass and routine distribution and the support of all partners.
