With a ‘hard to reach’ audience, Hepatitis C messages around risk factors, testing and treatment required an approach that media relations couldn’t achieve.
We worked with influencer Richie Hardcore on a series of content related to IV drug use, tattoos and boxing.
The content co-created with Richie was extremely powerful with a strong call to action to get tested for HepC shared thousands of times.
