DKT Philippines began its social marketing campaign in 1991 with the launch of TRUST Condoms. TRUST has since become the leading condom in the market, with over 100 million condoms sold. In 1997, DKT introduced TRUST Pill, a low-estrogen oral contraceptive. DKT Philippines has since introduced a full range of contraceptives at different price points to meet the needs of a wide variety of consumers.
DKT’s contraceptive sales provide a bridge from government-provided contraceptives to the commercialization of the contraceptive market in a country where the Catholic Church and other organizations oppose modern methods of contraception. DKT partners with the Ministry of Health to which it provides IUDs.
DKT Philippines also focuses on HIV/AIDS prevention, and has launched a variety of educational campaigns including one promoting condom use in brothels and hotels.
In 2016, the Philippine Supreme Court issued a temporary restraining order on the procurement and distribution of hormonal contraceptives, which would eliminate access to all forms of birth control other than condoms by 2020. DKT Philippines has moved quickly to build support within the government to revoke the order, and will continue to take proactive measures to ensure Filipinos have access to family planning.
DKT Philippines was originally heavily subsidized, but is now fully sustainable.
In 2016, DKT Philippines generated 2.9 million couple years of protection.
