Distribution

The distribution of nets typically takes place over a week to several months. The area District Health Service and staff typically take the lead in carrying out the on-the-ground distribution with the support and partnership of other organisations, often local or international NGOs, and with the national oversight of the National Malaria Control Program (NMCP), part of the Ministry of Health (MoH), and other funding and otherwise-contributing partners that form a distribution Task Force. Documentation is sought that shows nets were distributed as intended to beneficiaries. A distribution is typically divided into a series of locations.

Summary

  • The first phase of the distribution was completed successfully.
  • 317,000 LLINs distributed from 23Mar15 to 22May15.
  • 79,900 second phase nets
  • 80,000 LLINs allocated to an emergency flooding distribution are being replaced and will be distributed during a mop-up phase
  • The distribution was carried out by the Dowa District Health Service, involving 460 Health Surveillance Assistants (HSAs) under the management of the District Health Officer (DHO) and Malaria Coordinator (MC), in partnership with Concern Universal, Malawi.
