Wholesalers & Retailers

The private sector has a decisive role to play in the success of the Tanzania National Voucher Scheme, not only in terms of manufacturing nets but also in terms of expanding the distribution and sales network into the rural areas.

Insecticides Treated Nets (ITNs) are currently commercially available in over 6,800 retail outlets in every district in Tanzania. Approximately 2 to 2.5 million LLINs are sold through the TNVS annually. In addition, it is estimated that approximately 1.2 million to 1.5 million untreated polyester nets are currently sold on the commercial market in Tanzania annually, without any intervention from programmes. NMCP will assess whether it is feasible to introduce treatment at factory level and/or reintroduce retreatment kits to make these nets into ITNs and help maintain the ITN coverage.
