AMF agrees to fund 3.1 million nets for distribution in Guinea in Q1/Q2 2022

AMF has agreed to fund 3.1 million nets for distribution in Guinea with the distribution scheduled for early 2022. These nets aim to achieve 100% coverage across 15 prefectures in four regions, Boké, Conakry, Labé and Kindia, protecting 5.1 million people when they sleep at night from the bites of malaria-carrying mosquitoes.

This distribution is a continuation of our support to the Ministry of Health and National Malaria Control Programme in Guinea, whom we supported in 2019 when we funded 4.8 million nets.

Guinea 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 3,000 to 4,000 deaths, 2 to 4 million cases of malaria and make a material impact on the economy of Guinea. It is estimated that the improvement in GDP (Gross Domestic Product), a measure of economic performance, would be about USD75 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 3,095,550 LLINs, with distribution in 2022
  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.
