Media & Public Health Campaign – Wounds Australia

 Watt Advocacy & Communications delivered a streamlined, cost-effective public health awareness campaign that reached an estimated 7.5 million people (print and online) across approximately 200 media outlets. 

Wounds Awareness Week raises awareness about the prevention and treatment of chronic wounds in Australia. We designed a campaign approach that:

  • Provided a ‘call to action’ to change attitudes and behaviour by providing the right resources and incentives
  • Highlighted the social and economic cost of chronic wounds and the potential return on investment for governments
  • Brought together the chronic wounds ‘community of concern’
  • Tailoring the campaign to social media platforms used by the ‘community of concern’.

We supported Professor Fiona Wood AM (2005 Australian of the Year) as the ambassador of the campaign, who was an excellent spokesperson for Wounds Australia. We also worked with people with chronic wounds to sensitively share their stories during the campaign.
