They fund anti-malaria nets, specifically long-lasting insecticidal nets (LLINs), and work with distribution partners to ensure they are used. They track and report on net use and malaria case data.
AMF provides funding for long-lasting insecticide-treated net (LLIN) distributions for protection against malaria in developing countries. There is strong evidence that distributing nets reduces child mortality and malaria cases. AMF has relatively strong reporting requirements for its distribution partners and provides a level of public disclosure and tracking of distributions that GiveWell (charity evaluator) have not seen from any other net distribution charity. AMF's post-distribution surveys have generally found positive results, but GiveWell states there are some methodological limitations.
Where they work:
Primarily in Sub-Saharan Africa
What do they do?
Against Malaria Foundation (AMF) focuses on providing long-lasting insecticide-treated nets (LLINs) to protect people from malaria.
Insecticide-treated nets prevent deaths and many other non-fatal cases of malaria and are relatively inexpensive — about $5 per net. GiveWell believes that AMF effectively expands access to nets.
AMF's ecosystem: How AMF operates & their supporters
Why are they recommended?
As of July 2016, AMF has raised $86.6 million and distributed or committed to fund 19.3 million LLINs since its founding in 2004.
AMF works with distribution partners to distribute nets and ensure use. They conduct net use surveys and track monthly malaria data.
