2017 RESULTS - SUSTAINED SALES AND A STRONG OUTLOOK FOR 2018

 

DKT continued its overall growth trajectory in 2017 with 5.3 million couple years protection (CYPs) worth of product distribution. DKT is far-and-away the leading supplier of family planning and reproductive health products to the private sector in Ethiopia and, after the Government, the largest supplier of these products in the country.

 

DKT introduced a number of new products in 2017, including the Sensation Xtra brand extension as well as LemLem Orange. DKT continues to seek registration for a post-partum intrauterine device (PPIUD) and is currently exploring a hormonal IUD.
 

DKT also worked with the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), one of DKT's long-standing donors, to roll out Implanon NXT, a next generation implant contraceptive with easy-to-use applicator.
