What We Do
Contraceptive Social Marketing
Since 1996, DKT Indonesia’s core mission has been to provide safe and affordable options for HIV prevention and family planning through social marketing. Today, DKT Indonesia served over 7 million couples in 2015, using standard conversion factors for Couple Years of Protection (CYPs). This figure makes DKT one of the largest private providers of contraceptives and family planning services in Indonesia.
Family Planning: Reaching the Poor
DKT places a major emphasis on educating and empowering groups with particular needs, such as poor women, youth and adolescents, and marginalized populations so that they can fully understand and capitalize on their available reproductive health options. For example, one of the keys to DKT’s success in Indonesia has been the Andalan (meaning “reliable”) social franchising of midwives. In Indonesia, DKT is a strong supporter of midwives, who are the main providers of reproductive health services for the lower income and rural segments of Indonesian society. DKT Indonesia reaches an estimated 10,000 midwives monthly, providing materials, technical support and products. DKT has trained over 50,000 midwives in intrauterine device (IUD) and implant insertion and removal.
