Who We Are

DKT International is one of the largest private providers of family planning and reproductive health products and services in the developing world.

The Janani program began in 1995 as a pioneer of contraceptive social marketing and clinical family planning services in Eastern India. We provide family planning access to rural, poor and vulnerable populations in some of the most underserved areas of India. Janani operates clinics in the states of Bihar, Jharkhand and Uttar Pradesh under the brand name of Surya Family Planning Clinics. Initiated in 1998, the Surya clinic network was the first reproductive health social franchising program in India and one of the first in the world. It serves over 80,000 patients per year. Janani works in close partnership with the Government of India under the Public Private Partnership (PPP) component of the National Health Mission (NHM) and the Government of India’s National Contraceptive Social Marketing Program (CSMP). Janani also conducts social marketing in twenty four states across India by marketing and selling a range of contraceptive and safe abortion products, including condoms, oral contraceptives, injectables, IUDs, emergency contraception and mifepristone/misoprostol combination packs.
