DKT works with health care providers such as doctors and midwives to facilitate the provision of clinic services, including implant and IUD insertions. We work in both private and public sector clinics. DKT uses a number of strategies to deliver high-quality clinical services, including franchise clinics, DKT-owned clinics, DKT-endorsed clinics, and in-clinic trainings.
Clinic management: In India, DKT runs its own network of clinics, providing a wide range of services, including tubal ligation and vasectomy. In several countries, including Indonesia, Pakistan and Mozambique, DKT manages and oversees independent partner networks, providing branded signage, a full range of products and advertising to increase foot traffic through the clinic door.
Training: DKT has trained tens of thousands of health providers on IUD and implant insertion and removal, family planning counseling techniques, use of new contraceptives like Sayana Press and, where appropriate, protocols for abortion.
Building capacity: DKT develops a wide range of educational and detailing materials to help health providers provide better quality services.
