Health Advocacy and Health Impact

We are dedicated specialists who offer the skills and resources of a major global agency, combined with the passion and insight to create social change. Whether it’s working with policy-makers, educating the public, or building brands, we’re skilled at integrating issue advocacy, media relations and creative digital campaigns to engage audiences and deliver measurable results.

The value of vaccines; the final push to eradicate polio; malaria control; access to health innovations; family planning; non-communicable diseases; clean water and sanitation; and healthy ageing. These are the issues that ignite our passion and around which we engage stakeholders, key opinion formers and the public.

Unique among large agencies is Weber Shandwick’s investment in its Health Advocacy and Health Impact practice – a multi-office team that builds insight-driven strategic communications programmes delivering measurable results to non-profit organisations, companies and institutions. Our clients range from UN agencies (World Health Organization) to large foundations (Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation) and international NGOs (World Heart Federation) to multi-national companies (GSK) with strong corporate responsibility missions. The unifying thread in all our work is a shared mission with our clients to help improve health equity and create social change around the world.

Integrated thinking is at the heart of what we do. We work in partnership with other specialists in Corporate Responsibility, Sustainability and Corporate Communications.
