Thailand is in many ways a success story for sexual and reproductive health and rights. However, the country still faces certain challenges, including an inadequate number of health personnel, reduced access to family planning service in the southern region, and a decreasing use of male contraceptive methods.
Founded in June of 2009, DKT Thailand initially focused on conducting family planning and HIV/AIDS prevention outreach activities. DKT Thailand works closely with the Department of Health to conduct IUD insertion training for nurses to increase the number of healthcare personnel distributing long term contraceptives. DKT Thailand’s goal is to provide quality contraceptive products and accurate information about family planning and STD/HIV prevention while making progress towards sustainability.
DKT Thailand has one condom brand with four varieties (Tango Shadow, Tango Dotted, Tango Ultima, and Tango Plus), two IUD brands (Pregna and Inara), and four oral contraceptive brands (B-Lady, Microlenyn 30 ED, Microlenyn ED & Ferrous Fumarate, and Dailyton).
DKT Thailand sold over 1.2 million condoms, nearly 77,000 oral contraceptives, and nearly 9,000 IUDs in 2015. This translates to 57,000 CYPs.
