Epidemics campaigns

Ads & campaigns tackling diseases of all kinds that have threatened humanity have set an example over the years. With the COVID-19 outbreak, Social Samosa takes a look at disease awareness campaigns for motivation & takeaways.

History of Mankind has been ripe with incidences of Epidemic outbreaks, some reaching pandemic levels. From the era of Black Plague to HIV and now the Covid19 outbreak, there have been perpetual threats to living beings through the unpredictable enigma of nature. More than 32 million people lost lives through HIV AIDs alone by the end of 2018. Disease awareness campaigns became a way to spread awareness, hope, and positivity in the era of communication.

As the past and the recent scenarios have been rife with health disasters, so have been the efforts in the ad world. Be it the awareness campaigns tackling HIV awareness & stigma, to the efforts towards combating Typhoid across the world, be it people coming together to fight the Ebola Virus or the Polio eradication drives, the list can just go on... the one thing that remains constant is the intent to get rid of such diseases and save Mankind.
