396,900 nets on the way to Dowa District, Malawi
396,900 nets have shipped and will arrive in Dowa district in the middle of November for distribution from Dec14/Jan15 to protect 720,000 people and achieve universal coverage.
Our distribution partner Concern Universal will carry out the distribution.
AMF is funding both net and non-net costs, as was the case with the Balaka (2013) and Dedza (2014) distributions. We describe publicly the circumstances in which we cover non-net costs for a distribution.
A cost-driver led budget has led to detailed costings and we publish full budget details. Actual costs will be published at the end of the distribution.
The non-net cost per net is US$0.97. This covers shipping, pre-distribution activities (a district-wide household level registration to establish sleeping space net need), distribution and post-distribution follow-up (six, six-monthly check-ups of 5% of households, randomly selected and visited unannounced, carried out for three years post-distribution).
