DKT Ethiopia, the largest supplier of condoms to the private sector in Ethiopia, was invited to present at the National Condom Programming Workshop organized by the Federal HAPCO March 21 – 24, 2016, in Adama.
DKT led participants through sessions on developing information, education, and communication (IEC) materials for individual and mass audiences.
“It’s an honor to share our experience communicating about condoms, which is a strength of DKT,” says Befekadu Beyene, DKT’s HEI Officer, and Social Media Specialist.
“Since 1990, we have carried out hundreds of marketing campaigns as well as multiple brand introductions and grassroots promotions.”
“All of this has taught us what works in Ethiopia.”
The workshop was organized by the Federal HAPCO with the goal of bringing together diverse actors in condom programming, from supply chain management to monitoring and research. Male and female condoms are uniquely valuable to public health responses as they are the only technology that prevents both STIs, including HIV, and unwanted pregnancy.
