AMF funds 3.86 million nets for distribution in Guinea from March to April 2019

AMF has signed an agreement with the Guinea Ministry of Health to fund 3.86 million nets for distribution from March to April 2019. This represents 45% of Guinea's long-lasting insecticidal net (LLIN) need for their 2019 universal coverage campaign and a financial contribution of 25% of the cost of the universal coverage campaign.

The nets will be distributed in all 20 prefectures of four of Guinea’s regions, specifically Boké, Faranah, Kankan and Nzérékoré.

In total, 6.9 million people will be protected when they sleep at night from the bites of malaria-carrying mosquitoes – which would otherwise cause servere illness, or worse. Malaria is one of the primary health issues in Guinea, 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 14,933 individual donations from 6,954 donors from 80 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 3,860,000 LLINs for distribution in 2019 with the possibility of this rising to 5 million nets if registration data reliably indicates a higher population figure than that used in planning
  • This is a co-funding partnership with non-net costs (shipping, pre-distribution, distribution) funded by the Global Fund and the President's Malaria Initiative
  • '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
  • 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 four regions. AMF will fund this.
