The Against Malaria Foundation (AMF) is a U.K.-based charity that provides long-lasting insecticidal nets (LLINs) to populations at high risk of malaria, primarily in Africa. The Foundation was set up in August 2004 with the purpose of handling money raised through the World Swim Against Malaria, a global fundraising event scheduled for December 3, 2005. More than 250,000 people participated in the swim, which raised $1.3 million to buy nets. Ever since, money raised is used to help people from the risk of mosquito-borne malaria infection. They buy nets and they work with distribution partners who organise and fund the distribution of the nets. They make three types of allocation: (1) an underwriting allocation where net need has been identified and a commitment is needed now, but it is likely that a commitment will be made to a different, earlier distribution and this will lead to these funds being reallocated; (2) a provisional allocation where net need has been established and discussions are well advanced without a legally binding commitment; and (3) a confirmed allocation, where AMF has made a firm commitment to fund nets.
AMF works with the National Malaria Control Programme (NMCP) in each country and with specific distribution partners for each distribution who may take full operational responsibility for a distribution or may have specific monitoring and evaluation roles in line with the high levels of data-led accountability AMF requires. In the past their distribution partners have been local and international charities and individuals.
Mosquito nets are provided to projects implemented in sub-Saharan Africa.
The nets are bought by the Foundation and the distribution partner must finance the distribution.
Interested distribution partners can get in touch with the Foundation for more information and possible collaboration.
