Ad campaigns are often tailored to target a specific demographic, but the Africa Health Placements campaign takes that strategy to a whole other level. In a clever attempt to have the ear of foreign doctors, it involves a special delivery that can only be properly accessed with a stethoscope, a basic tool for any doctor.
Created in collaboration with Boomtown, a strategic brand agency based in South Africa, the Africa Health Placements campaign involves a pressure-activated device that directs doctors to place their stethoscope on it. Pressing down on the device activates a low frequency MP3 is activated which is only audible through the stethoscope.
The Africa Health Placements campaign deservedly won a silver Clio Healthcare award.
