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.

Summary

  • The distribution was completed successfully.
  • 245,489 LLINs distributed from 01Sep14 to 10Oct14
