Breaking New Ground in Family Planning and HIV/AIDS Prevention
Date:8/14/2014

ion campaigns in these areas to provide people with the information they need to make smart, informed decisions that can help them stay healthy and even save their lives.

“Having reached a low fertility rate, the government of Iran has slashed funding for birth-control programs. Our goal is to provide access to all products, services and information, good quality contraception choices and a diverse range of condoms that can compete on price and quality with already available products as a means of family planning and HIV/AIDS prevention measures, ” says, Country Director DKT Iran, Mehran Fatemi.

In Myanmar (formerly known as Burma), a country now emerging from decades of isolation following recent reforms, DKT aims to help fill unmet need for family planning products and services.

"Attitudes toward sexuality here are more conservative than in neighboring countries, these taboos mean that Myanmar's young people enter adult years armed with inadequate knowledge about sex and sexual health so, education is key," says Country Director DKT Myanmar, Hyam Bolande. “With some two-thirds of Myanmar's estimated 60 million people still living in rural villages, men and women simply aren't aware of the many choices they have, and we plan to provide access to the full range of family planning options," Myanmar’s maternal mortality rate is also one of the worst in the region, according to a recent UNFPA report, with 87 percent of maternal deaths occurring in rural areas.

The nonprofit organization DKT International is one of the largest private providers of family planning and reproductive health products and services in the developing world, serving 21 million couples in 2013, and preventing 8.3 million unwanted pregnancies, 12,364 maternal deaths, and 1.8 million abortions.
