AMF funds 2.9 million nets for distribution in Zambia in August 2017

AMF has signed an agreement with the Zambia Ministry of Health to fund 2.9 million nets for distribution in August 2017. This represents 30% of Zambia's long-lasting insecticide treated net (LLIN) need for their 2017 universal coverage campaign.

The nets will be distributed in four of Zambia’s ten provinces, specifically Central, Eastern, North-Western and Western.

In total, 5.2 million people will be protected. Malaria is one of the primary health issues in Zambia, with high incidence levels seen across the majority of the country. These nets have the potential to play a major part in reducing deaths and illness.

AMF allocates individual donations to specific distributions and so far we have allocated 5,166 individual donations from 3,625 donors from 47 countries. These figures will increase as further donations are allocated. Many donations, large and small, help fund these nets.

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

Key elements of our agreement include:

  • AMF is funding 2,862,200 LLINs for distribution in 2017
  • This is a co-funding partnership with non-net costs (shipping, pre-distribution, distribution) funded by the Global Fund
  • '105%' data collection will be used for the pre-distribution household-level registration process to support accurate data gathering
  • Household-level data will be put in electronic form using AMF’s Data Entry System (DES). This, and the above element combined, are the basis for a highly accountable distribution.
  • Post-distribution check-ups of net use and condition (PDCUs) will take place every six months for two and a half years in all provinces. AMF will fund this.
