Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

DKT International

DKT International directs 22 programs in family planning and HIV/AIDS prevention in Brazil, China, DRC, Egypt, Ethiopia, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Iran, Mexico, Mozambique, Myanmar, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, Thailand, Tanzania, Turkey, Vietnam, and regional programs in Francophone and Anglophone West Africa, the Middle East and North Africa, and Central and South America. In 2018, DKT delivered products and services to 55 countries, generating 44.6 million Couple Years of Protection.

DKT's policies require that its contraceptives be easily affordable to low-income persons. In every country, DKT's family planning and HIV/AIDS prevention programs price at least one brand of each family planning method within traditional affordability guidelines.

Donor costs for these programs are low and are declining. In 2017, the cot of one CYP was just $1.73.

In 2016, DKT acquired WomanCare Global, now called DKT WomanCare, which holds exclusive distribution rights for the Ipas Manual Vacuum aspiration kit and Levoplant implant.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

DKT strives globally to provide couples with affordable and safe options for family planning and HIV/AIDS prevention through dynamic social marketing.

DKT has many strategies that contribute to its goals and overall mission. DKT implements social marketing to promote family planning and HIV/AIDS prevention. DKT's culture of decentralization ensures that strategic and programmatic responsibility is delegated to their field offices and more than 2,000 employees around the globe. This allows for fast, on-the-ground decision-making that is based on the realities of the environment. It also means fewer headquarters costs, ensuring that donor funding is put where it will make the biggest impact.

DKT International is highly cost-efficient. Through cross subsidization, DKT is able to introduce and promote a comprehensive range of quality contraceptives to a given market, increasing affordable, reliable, high-quality family planning options for couples globally.

In 2018, DKT delivered contraceptive and safe abortion products/services to 55 countries. Results from 2018 reveal that DKT provided 44.6 million couple years of protection - their biggest year ever, and a 22% increase from 2017. These results place DKT among the ranks of the largest private providers of family planning in the developing world.
