Health and Wellness PR

Havas Health (formerly known as Havas Worldwide Health) is one of the largest fully integrated global health communications groups. A network of more than 60 health- and wellness-focused agencies in 50 countries, we offer advertising, PR, digital, event promotion and healthcare consulting services to 100-plus clients ranging from emerging pharmaceutical firms to biotech companies to healthcare groups and including Biogen Idec, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Genzyme, Novartis, Pfizer, Sanofi, Shire and Roche.

Our health team, which includes on-staff medical directors and staff members who are Ph.D.s and M.D.s, has extensive experience in corporate and internal communications, public health education campaigns, media relations, direct to consumer, medical education, disease awareness, crisis and issues management, and third-party alliances. We have designed and managed programs to support and promote health-related products (such as prescription-only, OTC, orphan drugs, cosmetics and foods) during the pre-marketing period, approval and product launch, and throughout the product’s life cycle. We also engage in clinically sound newscrafting that’s grounded in scientific and medical rigor to ensure the integrity of all communications.

With digital at our core, and knowing that it’s the future of healthcare, we go beyond traditional channels to reach patients, caregivers and professionals. Havas Health is a pioneer in using online engagement to empower professionals and patients to learn, share and advocate on behalf of disease states and effective treatments.

To help our clients succeed in a highly complex and evolving medical, political, social and economic landscape, Havas Health develops strategic communications programs that cut across promotional disciplines as the rule rather than the exception, combining healthcare knowledge and expertise with innovation in a diverse range of communications channels. We have also been trained on the regulatory environment by the Center for Communication Compliance.

Our single European P&L allows us to build a customized team that brings together the best people across borders, working together on global, regional and local activities. Locally, we are expert in understanding the critical importance of identifying and nurturing professional and third-party partnerships to enhance the credibility, scope and reach of our efforts.
