About Against Malaria Foundation Canada:

Founded in 2006, Against Malaria Foundation Canada (AMFC) raises money to buy mosquito nets, working to prevent the spread of malaria. Malaria kills 400,000 people every year and 200 million fall ill. Of those who die, 90% are people in sub-Saharan Africa and 70% are children under five. AMFC highlights that 100% of public donations buy long-lasting insecticidal nets (LLINs). AMFC is a fundraising branch of Against Malaria Foundation (AMF), based in United Kingdom.

A Charity Intelligence 2020 Top 10 Impact Charity

Insecticidal nets are treated using a chemical that kills mosquitos, making the nets 99% effective even if there are holes. The charity pays approximately $2 per net and each net lasts up to four years and protects an average of two people. AMF reports having distributed 13.7 million nets in F2019 in Guinea, Papua New Guinea, Malawi, and Ghana. It provides grants to local partners in disease-endemic areas, to distribute nets to households and evaluate their use.

Against Malaria Foundation aims to assess program effectiveness by visiting randomly selected net-receiving households every six months after distributions. Data is collected on how many of the households still have nets, how many have nets that are hung, and the condition of nets. AMF also assesses the impact of nets using monthly data on the local malaria infection rate and mortality.

Results and Impact

In September 2016, 25,217 nets were distributed by Against Malaria Foundation in the Upper West Regions of Ghana. In May 2018, surveyors found that 85% of the nets distributed were still hung and 7% had nets present but not hung. 3% of the households no longer had the net(s) they had been given. Of the nets that were examined, 5% were worn out.  

Against Malaria Foundation reports that for every 100-1000 nets distributed, one life is saved. Beyond death, malaria has a high economic cost through keeping people from working or forcing parents to stay home with a sick child. The charity states that every $1 million efficiently used in preventing or fighting malaria has $12 million of economic benefit in Africa. 

Ci has rated Against Malaria Foundation as High impact based on demonstrated impact per dollar.

Against Malaria Foundation Canada is a Medium-sized charity, receiving $2.9m in donations in F2019. Donations increased by 145% from F2018 to F2019 and by 49% from F2017 to F2018. Against Malaria Foundation Canada does not report administrative or fundraising costs. For every dollar donated, 100 cents go the cause. This is not within Ci’s reasonable range for overhead spending.

The lack of overhead costs is a result of the charity granting all its revenue to Against Malaria Foundation (international chapter). Funding reserves of $674 can cover virtually none of its annual program spending.

This charity report is an update that has been sent to Against Malaria Foundation Canada for review. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
