Distribution

The distribution of nets typically takes place over a week to several months. The area District Health Service and staff typically take the lead in carrying out the on-the-ground distribution with the support and partnership of other organisations, often local or international NGOs, and with the national oversight of the National Malaria Control Program (NMCP), part of the Ministry of Health (MoH), and other funding and otherwise-contributing partners that form a distribution Task Force. Documentation is sought that shows nets were distributed as intended to beneficiaries. A distribution is typically divided into a series of locations.

 

Locations

A distribution sometimes takes place in a number of locations. Each location may have its own pictures and video.

Survey status

Surveys take place 6, 18, 30 and 42 months post-distribution. A survey of 50 households provides sample information on what proportion of nets continue to be used, if they are used correctly and the state of the nets.
