AMF funds 4.3 million nets for distribution in Malawi from August to December 2018

AMF has signed an agreement with the Malawi Ministry of Health to fund 4.3 million nets for distribution from August to December 2018. This represents 40% of Malawi's long-lasting insecticide treated net (LLIN) need for their 2018 universal coverage campaign.

The nets will be distributed in 12 of Malawi's 28 districts, specifically Dedza, Dowa, Kasungu, Nkhotakota and Ntcheu Districts (all in the Central Region) and Balaka, Chikwawa, Chiradzulu, Mangochi, Mulanje, Neno, Phalombe and Thyolo Districts (all in the Southern Region).

In total, 7.8 million people will be protected. Malaria is one of the primary health issues in Malawi, 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 29,533 individual donations from 12,511 donors from 102 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 4,300,000 LLINs for distribution in 2018
  • 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 household-level registration process to support accurate data gathering - 5% of households will be re-visited as a check on registration numbers
  • AMF will collect household registration data from the entirety of a proportion of villages as an independent check on registration and population numbers
  • Household-level data will be collected on paper and then entered 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.
  • Post-distribution monitoring of net use and condition (PDMs) will take place every six months for two and a half years in all districts. AMF will fund this.
