SummaryDKT Vietnam has two main components: A social marketing campaign that focuses on making subsidized condoms, oral contraceptives pills, and other modern contraceptive methods, and targeted interventions for populations with HIV/AIDS and sexually transmitted diseases.
The goal of the program is to continue to increase affordability and accessibility of contraceptives to at-risk populations along with the general population. This is accomplished through the use of social marketing campaigns, a nationwide distribution network, and targeted interventions for at-risk populations that are vulnerable to HIV/AIDS and sexually transmitted diseases. DKT also targets HIV/AIDS high risk injectable drug users, providing clean syringes to decrease transmissions of HIV/AIDS.
Key program components
DKT-Vietnam also has created a unique public-private distribution network by partnering with HIV/AIDS authorities in provinces. Their programs provide both contraceptives to the general public, targeting at risk groups, and distributions of needles to injecting drug users.
Needles program to injecting drug users
Currently, DKT implements the needles social marketing project funded by AusAID through its HIV/AIDS Asia Regional Program (HAARP) to provide needles and syringes to injecting drug users. In 2012 DKT Vietnam provided 1.1 million clean syringes to the injecting drug users.
Increasing access to contraception:
In 2014, DKT Vietnam sold over 9.6 million condoms, 4.7 million oral contraceptives, aand 13,680 emergency contraceptives. DKT also targets condom distributions to sex workers along the Vietnam-Cambodia border. This translates to 762,029 couple years of protection.
