AMF funds 2.7 million nets for Ghana for June 2016 distribution

We have agreed to fund 2.7 million LLINs for distribution in Ghana in June 2016. This will close the net gap in Ghana and achieve universal coverage (all sleeping spaces covered) in three of the ten regions of Ghana: Upper West, Northern and Greater Accra (excluding Metropolitan Accra). These nets will protect 4.9 million people.

The nets will be distributed by the Ghana Health Service (GHS) under the management of the National Malaria Control Programme (NMCP).

AMF will work closely with both organisations and with in-country distribution partners who will have responsibility for:

  • Ensuring reconciliation of nets distributed with nets funded through detailed review of household-level records and associated monitoring
  • Post-distribution check-ups (PDCUs) of net use and condition at six monthly intervals for a period of 30 months.

AMF will fund the distribution partners’ work. We are finalizing the micro-planning for this and will publish full details and documentation in the coming weeks.

Distribution details: Upper West Region, Northern Region and Greater Accra Region
