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

DKT International

DKT International directs 24 programs that provided socially-marketed sexual and reproductive health products to over 100 countries in 2022 across Latin America, Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. DKT’s social marketing approach improves public health by leveraging the power and efficiencies of the private sector to increase access to affordable sexual and reproductive health products and services.

As of 2021, DKT is 75% sustainable, helping ensure donor costs will have a lasting impact on the ground. Furthermore, donations to DKT offer low costs for high results; in 2021, the donor cost per CYP was at a record low of just $1.49.

In 2016, DKT acquired WomanCare, the exclusive distributor of Ipas manual vacuum aspiration technology and Levoplant contraceptive implants. Since then, DKT WomanCare has expanded their reproductive health portfolio and now sells IUDs, IUS, emergency contraception, injectables, misoprostol tables, and medical abortion combipacks.

Charting impact

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

DKT strives to provide couples with affordable and safe options for sexual and reproductive health 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 sexual and reproductive health and HIV/AIDS prevention. DKT's culture of decentralization ensures that strategic and programmatic responsibility is delegated to field offices and more than 2,000 employees around the globe. This allows for fast, on-the-ground decision-making that is culturally appropriate and based on the realities of the environment. It also means lower headquarters costs—ensuring that donor funding is applied where it will make the biggest impact.

With over 30 years of experience, DKT is uniquely qualified to deliver results. Their experienced personnel, developed infrastructures, government partnerships, and well-established brands allow DKT to impact sexual and reproductive health wordwide. To ensure quality results, DKT oversees every step of the social marketing process—from registering products with local authorities to importing and distributing the goods, marketing products to consumers, and training local providers.

DKT also creates brands of contraceptives and other health products to advertise and sell as consumer goods. This approach inspires more people to use contraception, as many people prefer to access these services through the private sector.

DKT International has also developed the skills and resources to implement social marketing programs in a highly cost-efficient manner. Through cross subsidization, DKT is able to introduce and promote a comprehensive range of quality contraceptives to a given market, strengthening the supply chain and increasing affordable, reliable, high-quality sexual and reproductive health options for couples globally. DKT reinvests revenues generated from the sale of these products back into key programming activities, including product procurement.

In 2022, DKT delivered contraceptive and safe abortion products/services to individuals in over 100 countries. Results from 2022 reveal that DKT provided 61 million couple years of protection— their biggest year ever, and a 14% increase from 2021. These results position DKT as one of the largest—if not the largest—providers of sexual and reproductive health products in the world.
