Brazil is the largest country in South America, with a population around 204 million. Although Brazil is a middle income country, it has a large low income population, and DKT is a major provider of affordable condoms to this part of the population.
Brazil is one of DKT’s most commercially successful programs; it is completely self-sustaining from its revenues and provides funds to subsidize other DKT programs. DKT Brazil supports other nongovernmental organizations in Brazil with condoms, financial aid and information about HIV prevention.
By working with the Brazilian government, DKT was able to get the Brazilian government to lower taxes on condoms, resulting in cheaper condoms for the public. DKT’s condom brand Prudence is one of the most popular brands in Brazil.
In 2015, DKT Brazil sold almost 115 million condoms, and provided 1,185,274 couple years of protection.
