The Against Malaria Foundation (AMF) is a British charity that provides funding for mass distribution of long-lasting insecticide-treated nets (LLINs) to populations at high risk of malaria.

History

In June 2003, Rob Mather, a strategy consultant based in London, decided to organize a swim with two of his friends to raise funds for a girl who had suffered severe burns in a house fire. Over the following months, Mather's initiative grew in size and scope, eventually leading to the creation of World Swim Against Malaria (WSAM), which organized a quarter of a million swims in around 160 countries. In August 2004, Mather set up AMF to handle the money raised through WSAM and to raise funds in ways other than swimming.[1][2]

AMF continues to operate mostly as it did when it first launched. Although registered as a charity in 12 countries, AMF has no offices, but is run from the back room of Mather's house.[3]...
