WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION

A Global Education Effort for the WHO

Brief

As COVID-19 started to impact citizens across the globe, education around prevention became a necessity to help stop its spread. The World Health Organization partnered with WPP to help shape and spread the message through a cross-media campaign, deployed in over 25 languages.

Solution

Three global campaigns were developed, as well as numerous supporting marketing efforts, ranging from social influencer campaigns and the digital development and deployment of informational WhatsApp bots.

Heroic Behaviours, the first campaign, was developed by Grey New York and delivered the five key behaviours necessary to stop the spread of the virus.  Delivered across multiple channels, the campaign consisted of broadcast and social videos, print and digital display assets, with Hogarth transcreating, localising, editing, recording voiceovers and delivering assets – all under lockdown conditions.  The work ran in Australia, Canada, the US, UK, and across continental Europe.

In regions where a different approach was needed, particularly in countries with more challenging communication issues, Scanad Kenya developed an animated campaign that delivered what could be complicated messages simply and clearly.  Working against the clock to get multiple time-critical messages live across sub-Saharan Africa, Hogarth leveraged 7 local offices to produce and play out the edits. In collaboration with Scanad, Hogarth developed the master animation, provided post production and transcreation, worked on casting and recording of VOs remotely and delivered to multiple regions in Africa, India, and Latin America.

Ogilvy London also developed work to help teach children to properly wash their hands. Created in conjunction with Entertainment One, the suite of video assets featuring Peppa Pig was cleared and trafficked by Hogarth in both the UK and Australia.

Results

The COVID-19 response work was localised into over 25 languages, and assets have been delivered to major TV and radio networks, magazines and newspapers, and across social media.

In the space of 8 weeks, Hogarth produced over 550 assets across print, OOH, digital display, online video, print and TV - from animation to final delivery.
