Based in Tanzania, A to Z Textile Mills Ltd. occupies that tenuous space somewhere in between health products, job creation for about 7,000 people (mostly women) and "development."
"A to Z’s low-cost bednets treated with long-lasting insecticide (LLINs) are effective for up to five years, instead of the usual six months, and do not need to be re-treated," is what Acumen had to say. "Acumen’s initial investment in A to Z in 2003 catalyzed a public-private partnership between A to Z, Sumitomo Chemical, ExxonMobil, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF)."
With that investment, the company now makes about 29 million bed nets each year.
