(SALT LAKE CITY, UT) -- Phil Harvey, President of the international Aids organization DKT International, as well as PHE, Inc/Adam & Eve, responded to the recent distribution of condoms at this year's Winter Olympics, in Salt Lake City, Utah.
“I find the choice to distribute condoms to people from all nations coming to share in this special event a courageous and sensible decision. Olympians should go home with medals, not Aids. While we're working hard to sell and distribute condoms (over 300 million last year) it's nice to be getting some help from the Olympic authorities.”
One of the largest providers of family planning & Aids prevention services in the world, DKT International provided contraceptives to 6.6 million couples in 2001, preventing an estimated 115,00 infant and maternal deaths during the year. Since 1990, DKT's family planning programs have provided millions of men and women with accessible, affordable birth control products and services. DKT's first program was started in Ethiopia in 1990.
