The program began in 2005. In Sudan, there is a severe shortage in health professionals with one per 1000 people. As a result, there is a significant lack of ample reproductive healthcare and family planning services, which is a primary contributor to maternal death in Sudan. In a country of over 40 million people, there are fewer than 40,000 healthcare professionals. Condoms, IUDs, injectables, and oral contraceptives are in short supply. Sterilization procedures are rare. As a result, Sudan has a contraceptive prevalence rate of only 7 percent. DKT Sudan aims to increase condom, injectable, and oral contraceptive use among the poor..
Since DKT's program began, there has been a significant increase in demand for manual aspiration kits and Intrauterine Devices (IUD's) among women. DKT rehabilitates health centers to make them suitable for family planning services, trains medical providers to use manual aspiration kits and IUDs, and counsels women on birth spacing. DKT also ensures that these products are available in Sudan. In addition to DKT's reproductive health services and districution of products, it also developed a partnership with Sudan's government HIV/AIDS prevention agency to help reduce the prevalence of HIV/AIDS in the country. In 2009, DKT provided over 2 million condoms, 70,000 IUDs, and over 10,000 manual vacuum aspiration kits throughout Sudan. Today, DKT is the main distributor of condoms in Sudan.
