2016 RESULTS - STRONG SALES, POSITIONED FOR GROWTH IN 2017

 

The year 2016 was a year of sustained distribution and organizational consolidation for Ethiopia’s leading RH supplier to the private sector. DKT is now well positioned as it heads into 2017.

 

DKT distributed 5.86 million couple years protection (CYP) in 2016, a 42% increase over the previous year, though much of this increase was driven by large IUD provision to the Federal Ministry of Health and network partners. 

 

DKT undertook several efficiency measures in the year just completed, including streamlining sales territories, automating sales recordkeeping and further refining projects, all of which should serve the organization in the coming years.

 

“We have been working aggressively to become a sales-first project,” says Negussie GebreTsadik, DKT Ethiopia’s National Operations Director.

 

“These efforts are paying off.” 

 

“In the end, Ethiopian women and families will be the beneficiaries.”
