However, when it comes to healthcare campaigns, spreading awareness is the primary goal. A good healthcare campaign should create a long-lasting impression on the target audience, and appeal to their emotions. Many global healthcare brands have tried their hand at innovative campaigns and won worldwide acclaim. Now, Indian companies are following their footsteps and coming up with healthcare campaigns that not just create awareness, but also makes a far-reaching impact.
