Long-Lasting Insecticidal Nets

108 million
mosquito nets procured in 2018 through Pooled Procurement

Having continuous coverage of long-lasting insecticidal nets is a key component of malaria eradication. The Global Fund is committed to maintaining affordability of nets and ensuring sufficient supply over the three-year life cycle of nets. As a significant buyer, we are actively engaged in shaping the long-lasting insecticidal net market and supporting investments in innovative and next-generation nets.

We work with grant-implementing partners to understand their demand and programmatic needs over the grant cycle. Strategically standardizing net product specifications has enabled countries to streamline the procurement process and support program-monitoring initiatives. Nets are available through the Pooled Procurement Mechanism on our online purchasing platform, The Procurement and Delivery Planning Guide contains up-to-date indicative lead times:

We established our current long-term agreements in 2016 with suppliers, including local manufacturers, to supply over 7 million nets each month to Global Fund-supported grant programs.

The Global Fund is committed to increasing access to quality-assured long-lasting insecticidal nets. Other public sector buyers should reach out to Clarisse Morris at to learn how to access our negotiated terms and pricing.
