DDB Mudra North has partnered with the Indian government for creating a campaign which would galvanise the nation towards the mission of ending TB. The campaign is titled ‘#IndiavsTB,’ where it calls to the nation to unite against Tuberculosis. The objective of the campaign is to build momentum around the mission of making India TB Free.

 

Given the stigma around TB, the campaign had to be powerful yet sensitive towards the patients suffering from it. Hence, the face of the campaign is no other than megastar Amitabh Bachchan who not only survived the deadly disease but is also completely cured from TB.

 

DDB Mudra North partnered with The International Union against TB and Lung Disease to create a 360-degree campaign comprising of TVC, digital, radio and newspaper activations.

 

Said Kavita Ayyagari, Project Director, Challenge TB – The Union: “The campaign #INDIAVsTB is part of The Call to action for TB Free India and has been made by The International Union against TB and Lung Disease supported by USAID – Challenge TB. DDB Mudra North has come up with a campaign that touches the hearts of people and communicates key messages on symptoms of TB and the challenge of drug resistant TB due to incomplete treatment through MrBachchan. We are grateful to MrBachchan for his wholehearted support to our campaign. Together, we can bring TB out of the closet, talk about it and help make India TB Free.”

 

Added Sonal Dabral, Chairman and CCO, DDB Mudra Group: “The brief for the campaign was to build communication that can help eradicate TB by 2025. This campaign not only deals with the symptoms of TB and the need for treatment but emphasizes on complete treatment. Large number of TB patients in India drop their treatment without being totally cured of it and this results in MDR TB which is dangerous and often not treatable. They drop it as it’s extremely difficult to manage and the duration is long too.”
