Where We Send Nets
Distribution in Progress
How Do Bed Nets Get to Africa?
Nothing But Nets works with UN agencies and implementing partners to purchase the nets, transport them to Africa, and distribute them to families. Net distributions are typically part of a wider public health effort within a country coordinated local ministries of health and public health organizations. Our implementing partners and local governments have expertise in accessing remote, hard-to-reach areas throughout Africa. Check out a Bed Net’s Journey »
Which Countries Receive Nets?
Nothing But Nets identifies areas of greatest need across the Sub-Saharan Africa and works to fill gaps in funding. Our priorities are constantly changing to address countries and populations most in need. Our implementing partners, including the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), the World Health Organization (WHO), the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), the Alliance for Malaria Prevention (AMP), as well as others, work closely with local ministries of health to determine which countries will receive bed nets during integrated health campaigns.
Countries are chosen based on the prevalence and spread of disease, the number of years since the last campaign, and the willingness and preparedness of local governments and Ministries of Health. This process is necessary to ensure that each campaign is efficient, effective, and sustainable.
All of the planning, coordination, cooperation, implementation and education ensure that a bed net will make it into a mother’s hands, into a home, and over a bed to save the life of the child sleeping under it.
This entire process is accomplished for just $10. By simply purchasing a net through Nothing But Nets, you set all the gears in motion to get a net to where it is needed most.
