Partner clinic network reaches 100 members
DKT’s Partner Clinic network reached the 100-member mark in July 2018, a milestone outlined in the organization’s grant with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF).
“Having 100 high-quality partners across Ethiopia means we have viable service points for comprehensive family planning and reproductive health services,” says Dagnachew Alemayehu, DKT’s National Key Account Manager.
“We’re very proud of this accomplishment.”
As of June 2018, Partner Clinics have served 149,000 clients, the majority for family planning, including 64,000 first-time clients. Clinics have also distributed 81,000 couple years protection (CYP).
The majority of clinics are Medium Clinics, though the network also includes 9 OB/GYN speciality clinics and 13 MCH Centers.
In addition to BMGF, the network is supported by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands and the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA).
