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.

Further information is available via the dedicated province pages below.

Plateau, Zamfara and Benue


800,000th donation received, US$460,000,000 raised and 400 million people able to be protected - Thank you for your support!


We are delighted and grateful to be able to share that we have recently gone past several milestones - our 800,000th donation received, US$460,000,000 raised and a total of 400 million protected once we have distributed all the nets we can now fund.

Most donations range from a few dollars - and GBP, EUR, CND, NZD, AUD, YEN, BTC, ETH and more - to many thousands, with occasional large and very large donations. These donations have come from donors in 193 countries.

We publish and keep up to date in real-time our overall funding gap, which remains significant and is likely to be so over the coming few years so donations are put to work straight away.

As has always been the case, every US$2 matters as that buys a net that protects two people when they sleep at night, so we are incredibly grateful for your support for, and generosity to, AMF in helping achieve these milestones.

If ever I or the team at AMF can answer any questions, please do let us know. (Yes, I have a question). Thank you!


AMF agrees to fund 6.8 million nets for distribution in Chad in Q1 2023


AMF has agreed to fund 6.8 million nets for distribution in Chad with the distribution scheduled for January to April 2023. These nets aim to achieve 100% coverage across 12 provinces protecting 12.3 million people when they sleep at night from the bites of malaria-carrying mosquitoes.

This is the first time we have provided malaria control support to Chad.

Chad 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 7,000 to 9,000 deaths, 5 to 9 million cases of malaria and make a material impact on the economy of Chad. 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 USD163 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) 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 6,800,000 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.
