SummaryDKT Indonesia helps decrease infant and maternal mortality and lower HIV infection rates by training and working with midwives and increasing the use of contraception in Indonesia through dynamic social marketing.
Key program components
DKT-Indonesia has developed an especially strong network of midwives, the key providers of reproductive health services for the lower income and rural segments of Indonesia society. Working together and through central, regional, and provincial midwife associations, DKT-Indonesia directly reaches an estimated 15,000 midwives monthly through franchises and other venues, providing materials, technical support, and products. DKT-Indonesia tracks the ratio of sales revenues in relation to core program costs. Core program costs are defined as total operational expenses minus the behavior change activities of training, education, and marketing. Based on this calculation, DKT-Indonesia's sustainability was almost 100 percent in 2009. In 2012, DKT Indonesia sold over 133 million condoms, nearly 23 million oral contraceptives, over 12 million injectable contraceptives, over 158,000 IUDs, and over 8,000 manual vacuum aspiration kits. This translates into 6,851,920 CYPs, a 14% increase over the previous year. In October 2012, DKT Indonesia reached 1 billion in condom sales, only the second DKT program ever to reach this milestone.
DKT-Indonesia became an independent non-governmental social marketing organization in 1996. Over the past five years, the program has expanded dramatically, and it now serves over 5 million couples throughout the Indonesian archipelago. Today, DKT-Indonesia is the largest private family planning program in the world.
