The National Pediculosis Association (NPA) is the only non-profit health and education agency dedicated to protecting children from the misuse and abuse of potentially harmful lice and scabies pesticidal treatments. As part of its mission, the NPA works to encourage our nation's health and child care professionals to adopt standardized head lice management programs to keep children in school lice and nit free. Communities that promote head lice prevention programs demonstrate a commitment to health and wellness. Founded in 1983, the National Pediculosis Association®, Inc. (NPA) is a 501 c 3 non-profit volunteer organization including scientific advisors dedicated to protecting children and their environment from the misuse and abuse of over-the-counter chemical treatments for lice and prescription pediculicides. Proceeds from the LiceMeister® comb allow the NPA to be self-sustaining and accomplish its mission.
