2023 Round up and update - Thank you for your support!


As 2023 draws to a close we would like to thank all who have supported and worked with AMF this year as without donors, distribution partners, volunteers and pro bono supporters we would not be able to do what we do in contributing to the fight against malaria. Thank you!

Distributions update

We are drawing to the end of a nine-month period during which 85 million nets will have been distributed across seven countries - Chad, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Nigeria, South Sudan, Togo, Uganda and Zambia - to protect 150 million people.

We work with many distribution partners and other independent monitoring partners, all of whom have done a wonderful job this year and we thank them for their partnership.

In addition, we are carrying out, with other partners, post-distribution monitoring activities to assess net presence, use and condition, in all the countries in which we have previously distributed nets.

2024 and 2025 will be busy years with 26 million nets already committed to protect a further 47 million people.

Impact

The impact of the 85 million nets being distributed is expected to be, ± 20%, 40,000 deaths prevented, 20 million cases of malaria averted and a US$2.2 billion improvement in local economy (12x the funds applied). When people are ill they cannot farm, drive, teach – function, so the improvement in health leads to economic as well as humanitarian benefits.

This is a terrific contribution from the tens of thousands of donors who have contributed significantly over the last two years, and the many partners with whom we work that make possible the distribution of these life-saving nets.

Once all the nets we have funded in our 19 years and can currently fund have been distributed and have had their impact, the overall impact is expected to be: 250 million nets funded and distributed, 450 million people protected, 185,000 deaths prevented, 100 to 185 million cases of malaria averted and US$6.5 billion of improvement in local.

Future distributions

Many recognise the impact of AMF’s work, yet we still have significant immediate funding gaps that are over US$300m. While this number seems daunting, every US$2 matters as that funds another net and allows two more people to be protected when they sleep at night, so no support is too small or inconsequential.

1,000,000th donation and over US$548 million raised so far!

We are thrilled to have passed these totals, with most donations ranging from a few $, £, €, CAN$, NZ$, AUS$, bitcoin and more - to many thousands.

We are so grateful for your support. Thank you!

Tax-Deductibility

We now have tax-deductible status in 14 countries.

The two most recent countries added are Switzerland and France. We have recently set up a legal entity in South Korea - AMF Korea - and hope to hear about tax-deductible status in the next few weeks. We continue to assess the need for tax-deductible status in other countries - one further country is in the application stage.

AMF top ranked!

AMF has again been top-ranked by the leading organisations 'dedicated to finding outstanding giving opportunities'.

GiveWell has ranked AMF a top charity for the fourteenth year running. GiveWell has been a strong supporter of AMF's work and we thank their team for their continuous and thorough assessment of what we do.
The Life You Can Save has AMF as a top-ranked charity for the twelfth year in a row. TLYCS and their team has equally been a stalwart supporter and their work and recommendations have led to tens of thousands of lives being saved.
Giving What We Can have similarly continuously top-ranked AMF over its history.

A suggestion for the Christmas/Holiday season!

Donate nets instead of gifts.

We send the recipient/s an email (on a date you choose e.g. 25th Dec) with your personal message and a link to their 'gift page', allowing them to follow the progress of their nets.

May we wish you a very happy and healthy 2024!

AMF agrees to fund 25 million nets for distribution in DRC in 2024 to 2026


AMF has agreed to fund 25 million nets for distribution in the Democratic Republic of Congo during 2024 to 2026. These nets will contribute to, but in no way close, the funding gap for this period.

The nets should achieve full coverage of sleeping spaces across 170 health zones in 12 provinces to protect 45 million people when they sleep at night from the bites of malaria-carrying mosquitoes.

DRC is affected year-round by malaria and these nets have the potential to play a major part in reducing deaths and illness.

These nets could be expected to prevent 25,000 to 30,000 deaths, avert 15 to 30 million cases of malaria and make a material impact on the economy of DRC. It is estimated that the improvement in GDP (Gross Domestic Product), a measure of economic performance, as a result of AMF’s commitment would be about USD660 million.

We are about to allocate individual donations to these specific distributions and many donations, large and small, will fund these nets.

The distributions will be implemented by the PNLP (Programme National de Lutte contre le Paludisme – National Malaria Control Programme) and other partners, with whom AMF will work closely and with whom we have an agreed set of processes and a strong and open working relationship. We will report transparently on progress and performance throughout and after the distribution.

Lead times for this significant logistical programme, across a country two-thirds the size of Western Europe, means that nets for the 2024 distributions are being ordered now and for the 2025 distributions in the coming months.

Key elements of our agreement include:

  1. AMF is funding ~25,000,000 LLINs, with distribution during 2024 and 2025 (as AMF's contribution to the 2024 to 2026 campaign)
  2. This is a co-funding partnership with non-net costs (shipping, pre-distribution, distribution) funded by the Global Fund
  3. To support accurate data gathering, verification of net need numbers will take place by re-visiting a material number of households chosen at random
  4. Household-level data will be collected using electronic-devices and then transferred into AMF's Data Entry System (DES) for analysis and verification. This, and the above elements combined, are the basis for a highly accountable distribution.
  5. Post-distribution monitoring of net use and condition (PDMs) will take place every nine months for two and a half years in all districts. AMF will fund this.

Further information is available via AMF’s distributions listing

There remains a huge gap in critical funding for the 2024 to 2026 period for DRC. Together with our partners, the Global Fund and the President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI), we are able to fund 62% of the nets needed for DRC for this period. There is still a US$145 million shortfall that leaves 38% of the country, all highly malarious, currently without a protection plan. If this situation does not change, tens of thousands of people can be expected to die from malaria. The three partners are not aware of any significant further funding sources for this period which is why this gap is described as critical.

1,000,000th donation!


We are delighted to share the news that AMF has recently gone past the milestone of one million donations received since AMF began.

This total is from 202,323 people in 200 countries, with the smallest donation being US$2 and the largest US$53 million, for a total of US$541,549,263 raised to date.

Our thanks to so many people who so generously care about the fight against malaria.

The 1,000,000th donation was a US$100 donation from Jenifer in Ohio, USA!

Other numbers, in increasing order of importance, are: 247,208,000 nets funded (or will be) to protect 444,975,000 people in 40 countries leading to, once all nets funded are distributed and have had their impact, an estimated improvement in local economies of US$6.5 billion, and estimates of 185 million cases of malaria averted and 185,000 lives saved.

Thank you to all who have donated so far, to all those who have provided pro bono support to AMF as well as to our many partners in the field who work so hard to bring about change.

We are so grateful to you.

With funding gaps that exist, AMF's commitment to fighting malaria is as strong as ever and the need to fight this disease is urgent. Every $2 donation matters as much as ever, as each net matters to the two people it protects.

From all of us at AMF – thank you.

AMF has agreed to fund 1.6 million nets for distribution in Kwango province in the Democratic Republic of Congo with the distribution scheduled for May 2024. These nets fill the funding gap and aim to achieve 100% coverage across 14 health zones protecting 2.9 million people when they sleep at night from the bites of malaria-carrying mosquitoes.

DRC is affected year-round by malaria and these nets have the potential to play a major part in reducing deaths and illness.

These nets could be expected to prevent 1,500 deaths, avert 1 to 1.5 million cases of malaria and make a material impact on the economy of Kwango province. It is estimated that the improvement in GDP (Gross Domestic Product), a measure of economic performance, as a result of AMF’s commitment would be about USD40 million.

Zambia is affected year-round by malaria and these nets have the potential to play a major part in reducing deaths and illness.

These nets could be expected to prevent 2,500 to 3,000 deaths, avert 2 to 3 million cases of malaria and make a material impact on the economy of Zambia. It is estimated that the improvement in GDP (Gross Domestic Product), a measure of economic performance, as a result of AMF’s commitment would be about USD135 million.

$500,000,000 raised!


We are delighted to share the news that we have just gone past the milestone of US$500 million raised since AMF began.

It is thanks to 919,371 donations from 185,318 people in 189 countries that we have passed this total. Our thanks to so many people who so generously care about the fight against malaria.

Other numbers, in increasing order of importance, are: 227,693,156 nets funded (or will be) to protect 409,847,681 people in 40 countries leading to, once all nets funded are distributed and have had their impact, an improvement in local economies of US$6 billion, 150 to 200 million cases of malaria averted and an estimated 170,000 lives saved.

Fittingly, it was a grant of US$2.6m from GiveWell that took us past this total given the support they have shown AMF over the last 15 years. AMF has been a top charity at GiveWell for all of those years and is the only charity to have been so ranked, reflecting our commitment to our guiding principles of impact, accountability, transparency and efficiency.

Thank you to all who have donated so far, to all those who have provided pro bono support to AMF as well as to our many partners in the field who work so hard to bring about change.

We are so grateful to you.

With funding gaps that exist, AMF's commitment to fighting malaria is as strong as ever and the need to fight this disease is urgent. Every $2 donation matters as much as ever, as each net matters to the two people it protects.

2022 Round up and update - Thank you for your support!


As 2022 draws to a close we would like to thank all who have supported and worked with AMF this year as without donors, distribution partners, volunteers and pro bono supporters we would not be able to do what we do in contributing to the fight against malaria. Thank you!

Distributions update

In the last 12 months we have completed the distribution of 16.9 million nets to protect 30.5 million people in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Guinea.

In the next two months we will complete the distribution of a further 17.1 million nets to protect 30.8 million people in DRC and Nigeria.

For 2023, we have allocated and committed funding for 68.1 million nets that will protect a further 123 million people in Chad, DRC, Guinea, Nigeria, South Sudan, Togo, Uganda and one other country (to be announced shortly when the agreement is signed).

2023 will be a busy year with 17 separate distributions and significant work seeking funds for the 2024 to 2026 distribution period.

This is all thanks to you, our donors, and the generosity and caring you have shown for people who live many thousands of miles away from you.

We work with many distribution partners and other independent monitoring partners, all of whom have done a wonderful job this year and we thank them for their partnership.

In addition, we are carrying out, with other partners, post-distribution monitoring activities to assess net presence, use and condition, in all the countries in which we have previously distributed nets.

Future distributions

There remains a huge need for nets. The gap for the next two years runs into tens of millions of nets. AMF is in discussions with a number of countries requiring millions of nets each for the period 2024 to 2026. We publish AMF's immediate and overall funding gap which is kept up to date in real-time as funds are received and opportunities added. For the 2024 to 2026 period, the funding gap is very large.

893,000th donation and over US$490 million raised so far!

We are thrilled to have passed these totals, with most donations ranging from a few $, £, €, CAN$, NZ$, AUS$, bitcoin and more - to many thousands.

We are so grateful for your support. Thank you!

Tax-Deductibility

We now have tax-deductible status in 14 countries. Recently added has been France with the establishing of AMF (France). We continue to assess the need for tax-deductibility status in other countries, and two are in the application stage.

AMF top ranked!

AMF has again been top-ranked by the two leading organisations 'dedicated to finding outstanding giving opportunities'.

GiveWell has ranked AMF a top charity, for the fourteenth year running. AMF is the only organisation to have been ranked every year in this way. GiveWell has been a terrific supporter of our work and we thank their team for their continuous and thorough assessment of our work.
The Life You Can Save has AMF as a top-ranked charity for the eleventh year in a row. TLYCS and their team has equally been a stalwart supporter and their work and recommendations have led to tens of thousands of lives being saved.

A suggestion for the Christmas/Holiday season!

Donate nets instead of gifts.

We send the recipient/s an email (on a date you choose e.g. 25th Dec) with your personal message and a link to their 'gift page', allowing them to follow the progress of their nets.

May we wish you a very happy and healthy 2023!

AMF agrees to fund 10.8 million nets for distribution in Uganda in 2023


AMF has agreed to fund 10.8 million nets for distribution in 53 districts across four regions in Uganda in the second half of 2023. These nets aim to achieve 100% coverage of four million households protecting 20 million people when they sleep at night from the bites of malaria-carrying mosquitoes.

Uganda is affected year-round by malaria and these nets have the potential to play a major part in reducing deaths and illness.

These nets could be expected to prevent 5,000 to 6,000 deaths, 3 to 6 million cases of malaria and make a material impact on the economy of Uganda. It is estimated that the improvement in GDP (Gross Domestic Product), a measure of economic performance, would be about USD 310 million.

We are about to allocate individual donations to these specific distributions and many donations, large and small, will fund these nets.

The distributions will be implemented by the Uganda Ministry of Health’s National Malaria Control Division (NMCD), with whom AMF will work closely and with whom we have signed a legal Agreement detailing our support and a mutually agreed set of operational procedures and real time data sharing. This is our third distribution in partnership with the NMCD with whom we have a strong and open working relationship.

We will report transparently on progress and performance throughout and after the distribution.

Key elements of our agreement include:

  1. AMF is funding 10,800,000 LLINs, with distribution in Q3 and Q4 2023
  2. This is a co-funding partnership with non-net costs (shipping, pre-distribution, distribution) funded by the Global Fund
  3. To support accurate data gathering, re-checks of net need numbers will take place by re-visiting a material number of households chosen at random
  4. AMF will fund an independent partner to monitor the progress of the distribution in a significant number of randomly selected villages which generates a material quantity of data that is closely assessed
  5. Household-level data will be collected using electronic-devices and then transferred into AMF's Data Entry System (DES) for analysis and verification. This, and the above elements combined, are the basis for a highly accountable distribution.
  6. Post-distribution monitoring of net use and condition (PDMs) will take place every nine months for two and a half years in all districts. AMF will fund this.

AMF agrees to fund 5.7 million nets for distribution in South Sudan in Q1 2023


AMF has agreed to fund 5.7 million nets for distribution in South Sudan with the distribution scheduled for December 2022 to April 2023. These nets fill the funding gap and aim to achieve 100% coverage across 53 counties in seven states protecting 10.3 million people when they sleep at night from the bites of malaria-carrying mosquitoes.

South Sudan is affected year-round by malaria and these nets have the potential to play a major part in reducing deaths and illness.

These nets could be expected to prevent 2,500 to 3,000 deaths, avert 2 to 3 million cases of malaria and make a material impact on the economy of South Sudan. It is estimated that the improvement in GDP (Gross Domestic Product), a measure of economic performance, as a result of AMF’s commitment would be about USD135 million.

We are about to allocate individual donations to these specific distributions and many donations, large and small, will fund these nets.

The distributions will be implemented by the NMCP (National Malaria Control Programme) and other partners, with whom AMF will work closely and with whom we have an agreed set of processes and a strong and open working relationship. We will report transparently on progress and performance throughout and after the distribution.

Key elements of our agreement include:

  1. AMF is funding 5,700,000 LLINs, with distribution in 2023
  2. This is a co-funding partnership with non-net costs (shipping, pre-distribution, distribution) funded by the Global Fund
  3. To support accurate data gathering, re-checks of net need numbers will take place by re-visiting a material number of households chosen at random.
  4. Household-level data will be collected using electronic-devices and then transferred into AMF’s Data Entry System (DES) for analysis and verification. This, and the above elements combined, are the basis for a highly accountable distribution.
  5. Post-distribution monitoring of net use and condition (PDMs) will take place every nine months for two and a half years in all districts. AMF will fund this.

This is the first time we have provided malaria control support to South Sudan, which represents a challenging operating environment. The accountability items in the agreement, along with strong partnerships with the NMCP, distribution and co-funding partners will be key to ensuring a successful distribution.

AMF agrees to fund 10.2 million nets for distribution in Nigeria in 2023


AMF has agreed to fund 10.2 million nets for distribution in three states, Plateau, Zamfara and Benue, in Nigeria. The distributions are scheduled for February, August and November 2023. These nets aim to achieve 100% coverage across all three provinces, protecting 18 million people when they sleep at night from the bites of malaria-carrying mosquitoes.

Nigeria is one of the two most malarious countries in the world with malaria responsible for the deaths of at least 150 children under 5 each day in Nigeria alone, with high incidence levels seen across the large majority of the country.

These nets have the potential to play a major part in reducing deaths and illness. This initial quantity of nets could be expected to prevent 6,200 deaths, 3 to 6 million cases of malaria and make a material impact on the economy of Nigeria. It is estimated that the improvement in GDP (Gross Domestic Product), a measure of economic performance, would be about USD 240 million.

We are about to allocate individual donations to these specific distributions and many donations, large and small, will fund these nets.

The distributions will be implemented by the National Malaria Elimination Programme of Nigeria and state partners, with whom AMF will work closely and with whom we have an agreed set of processes and a strong and open working relationship. We will report transparently on progress and performance throughout and after the distribution.

Key elements of our agreement include:

  1. AMF is funding 10,200,000 LLINs, with distribution in 2023
  2. This is a co-funding partnership with non-net costs (shipping, pre-distribution, distribution) funded by the US’s President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI)
  3. To support accurate data gathering, re-checks of net need numbers will take place by re-visiting a material number of households chosen at random.
  4. Household-level data will be collected using electronic-devices and then transferred into AMF’s Data Entry System (DES) for analysis and verification. This, and the above elements combined, are the basis for a highly accountable distribution.
  5. Post-distribution monitoring of net use and condition (PDMs) will take place every nine months for two and a half years in all districts. AMF will fund this.
