Why US$4 per net?
There are different brands, insecticide compositions, shapes and sizes of LLIN. All influence the cost of the net. The most frequently distributed nets are large, family-sized nets which cost between US$3 and US$5.
As at May 2013: The current average price for a net is close to US$4.
We achieve at least equal lowest price in the world for nets due to the support of net manufacturers, buying in large quantities and paying immediately. This allows us to maximise the number of nets bought for funds raised.
The average price paid for all LLINs purchased to date is:
The remaining funds (US$17,418,426 - US$6,957,026 = US$10,461,400) are currently being assigned to distributions or have invoices pending.
