Risk Register

The Risk Register is an important document that allows us to list, rank, share and act as necessary to ensure AMF is doing the most it can to protect people from malaria. We list here the core, financial, IT, employee, board and compliance risks as part of our commitment to transparency and accountability. We monitor these risks on a continuing basis.

Will a material quantity of nets be stolen? AMF considers this the greatest risk to achieving an effective distribution. Avoiding theft and ensuring nets are distributed to beneficiaries as intended, so nets protect an entire community as intended, is a fundamental element of the assessment, planning and monitoring processes for an AMF-funded distribution. Working with the distribution partners, AMF assesses the processes, receipt mechanisms and independent monitoring that will be used on each distribution. 2

So far there has been no material loss of nets through theft. This is based on extensive data-based reporting immediately post-distribution as well as regular post-distribution net use and condition check-ups (PDCUs) which can reveal immediate and subsequent material theft of nets. However, AMF is aware all countries in which nets are needed are prone to theft and corruption. AMF will counter this by continuing to set high standards of data-provision and monitoring and working with distribution partners with a commitment to this work.
 
Will the nets in a beneficiary household remain 'present but not hung'? AMF considers this the second most significant risk to achieving an effective distribution. The most important actions to avoid nets being 'present but not hung' are i) malaria education - covering the way a net protects, how to hang it effectively and the importance of community-wide use of nets - taking place prior to the distribution and involving the majority of the beneficiary community; ii) regular post-distribution net use and condition check-ups (PDCUs) both to provide data as to the level of net use which can be used to assist local health leaders when deciding on additional education or hang-up interventions as well as the data-gathering process itself acting as a reminder to communities of the importance of net use; iii) additional education or hang-up interventions being carried out where appropriate.

Malaria education activities as part of the pre-distribution and distribution process, post-distribution net use and condition check-ups, and additional malaria intervention activities will continue to be key aspects of AMF-funded distributions. This will continue to be monitored.
