Future distributions update

We have updated the information describing potential future distributions.
 
We have made good progress in the last two months and are now in the final stages of discussion with several significant distributions.
 
We have identified co-funding and distribution partners and details are being discussed with these partners and the relevant National Malaria Control Programmes (NMCPs)
 
We are planning new net distributions during 2015 to 2017. In several cases, where we are considering a particularly significant quantity of nets, we are looking at funding distributions in three phases:
  • 2015/early 2016 - pilot distributions of between 100,000 and 200,000 nets
  • 2016 - 1 to 2 million nets
  • 2017 - 1 to several million further nets.
This strucutre has the benefit of allowing relationships to be established and developed with NMCPs and partners with whom we have not worked previously, and demonstrates AMF's support is long term.
 
It also allows us to manage risk and structure our support to provide an incentive to all parties involved to ensure the distributions run as agreed and are successful.
 
Reaching and finalising agreements - particularly this last stage - can take several months and there is always the possibility an individual agreement will not be finalised.
 
Our updates share as candidly as we can the progress made.
 
We consider potential distributions three years ahead as this matches the planning cycle of NMCPs and the advance period in which they seek commitments for support. There are also regions where distributions are needed on a shorter timescale, and we act to cover them. More information via Planning horizon and Allocating donations.
