Implanon NXT, the second generation Implanon contraceptive implant from Merck, is now available from DKT thanks to a grant from UNFPA.
Under the grant, DKT will provide 30,000 Implanon NXT through Partner Clinics and mainstream channels.
Implanon NXT is a single-rod implant pre-loaded in a lightweight applicator, increasing ease of administration and patient comfort.
“With Ethiopian women and couples increasingly accepting implants, we believe the simplicity of Implanon NXT has great potential to create new demand,” says Dagnachew Alemayehu, DKT’s National Key Account Manager.
“Implanon NXT will be a crucial tool to meet unmet need and a game changer for women switching from short-acting reversible contraceptives to long-term methods.“
