MARCH 2019
Dear Friend of DKT,

After some number crunching, I am very pleased to share with you that DKT International had a record-breaking year in 2018, delivering 44.6 million CYPs across programs in some 55 countries around the world. CYPs delivered are a result of a DKT product sold directly to an end consumer, health provider, or an institution that then uses those products.

In 2018, DKT sold or otherwise directly provided:
  • 722 million male and female condoms
  • 5.5 million IUDs
  • 684,000 implants
  • 29.6 million injectables
  • 10.6 million emergency contraceptives
  • 101 million oral contraceptives
  • 15.5 million misoprostol tabs
  • 3.5 million mife/miso combipacks
  • 180,000 aspirators and 1.6 million cannulae

We estimate that the products, services, and technology delivered by DKT averted:
  • 12.7 million pregnancies
  • 9.8 million unsafe abortions
  • 31,800 maternal deaths
  • 90,000 infant deaths

We are very proud of these results and also of sharing, transparently, the raw data for others to assess and analyze. You can find the full report of every country and product sold here as well as our health impact analysis here.

We are grateful for the support of the many business partners, donors, governments, and DKT employees who have helped in the realization of these results.
