Where We Send Nets
Distribution in Progress
How Do Bed Nets Get to Africa?
The UN Foundation's Nothing But Nets campaign works directly with our UN partners to ensure that your net makes it from the factory to a country, to a village, and ultimately to a family.
Which Countries Receive Nets?
Nothing But Nets works with UN 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 by the UN and local ministries of health. UN agencies and their local partners have expertise in accessing remote, hard-to-reach areas throughout Africa.
Our UN partners, including the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), and the World Health Organization (WHO) 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.
Sending Nets, Saving Lives
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.
