DKT ETHIOPIA WELCOMES DKT INTERNATIONAL PRESIDENT CHRIS PURDY
“…It is very nice to see everyone and always nice to come to Ethiopia…My first experience with DKT was in Ethiopia and you never forget your first love. I have to say that even though I have been following what you have been doing here for the 10 – 15 years since I left, the last two days have been a really fantastic exposure to what this program has become.”
“…I am sure you know this already, but it is something to be really proud of, the contribution this program makes to family planning, HIV prevention, and reproductive health in general in Ethiopia. It is really quite amazing.”
Prior to becoming President of DKT International in 2013, Mr. Purdy served as Executive Vice President of the organization. He also served as Country Director for DKT in Turkey, Indonesia, and Ethiopia. His first assignment with DKT was in Ethiopia, where he led the program from 1997 to 2000.
Mr. Purdy replaces Mr. Phil Harvey, founder and president of DKT International, who served as head of the organization until 2013.
