A serious impediment to the provision of malaria commodities to clients in Angola has been theft. Four known thefts of PMI-financed ACTs occurred in the country between mid-2008 and May 2009. In total, about 535,000 treatments worth almost $650,000 were stolen before they could be transferred to health facilities. The costs of those losses do not include the several hundred thousand dollars spent on formal police investigations and on technical assistance by PMI implementing partners and in-country counterparts.

As part of efforts by PMI and the Angola Ministry of Health (MOH) to remedy this issue, the USAID | DELIVER PROJECT assumed responsibility for provincial deliveries and later introduced freight consolidation measures the resulted in reduced costs and decreased delivery time
