धूलकोट - DKT

"DKT International" ("DKT") is a Charitable organization non-profit organization that promotes family planning and HIV prevention through social marketing. The Washington, D.C.-based DKT was founded in 1989 by Phil Harvey and operates in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Its revenue largely comes from sales of low-cost birth control. In 2018, DKT sold over 721 million condoms, 101 million cycles of Combined oral contraceptive pill, 29 million Birth control#Hormonal methods and 5.5 million intrauterine devices (IUDs). This is equivalent to 43.6 million couple years of protection (CYPs), making DKT one of the largest private providers of contraceptives in the developing world. The average cost per CYP was United States dollar1.73. DKT's marketing strategies have included advertising, creating location-specific brands, working with local social networks and militaries, and targeting high-risk groups. DKT also works with health workers and clinics that provide family planning products, information, and services. Charity Navigator has given DKT a four-star rating for its finances, with 97.9% of its budget going towards programs and 1.9% towards headquarters expenses and fund raising in 2017. DKT International, named for Deep Tyagi, an early pioneer of family planning in India, was founded in 1989. DKT has grown rapidly over the years; its revenue from selling contraceptives increased from United States dollar4.5 million in 1996 to $145.7 million in 2017, and its couple years of protection increased from 5.7 million in 2002 to more than 43 million in 2018.

In 2006, DKT International refused to take the U.S. government's anti-prostitution pledge, feeling the pledge would interfere with its HIV/AIDS services worldwide. DKT challenged the pledge as a violation of First Amendment to the United States Constitution rights, with the support of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). Judge Emmet G. Sullivan ruled in favor of DKT in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia on 18 May 2006, but the District of Columbia Court of Appeals reversed the decision on 27 February 2007. A Alliance for Open Society International successfully challenged the pledge before the U.S. Supreme Court in ''Agency for International Development v. Alliance for Open Society International, Inc.''

On 31 December 2013, Phil Harvey stepped down as president after 24 years, replaced by Christopher Purdy. Its board includes Robert Ciszewski, Carlos Garcia, Christopher Purdy, Matthew Reeves, Julie Stewart and Harvey, who also serves as chair of the board. In 2017, 70.6% of DKT's revenue was from contraceptive sales and related services, 18.9% from grants and contracts and 10.5% from investment and other income. 55.5% of expenses were related to program costs, 42.0% to contraceptive costs, 1.7% to headquarters expense and other, and 0.2% to fundraising. Revenue from contraceptive sales first exceeded donor support in 2005.

As of 2019, DKT International had 23 programs with sales in 55 countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Some platforms serve more than one country.
