Strategic Communication

Clear and impactful communication is critical to the functioning of any public health program, whether working to change harmful behaviors among a population, promoting new policies or managing public information in a health crisis. Vital Strategies has expertise across the spectrum including advertising, media relations, social and mobile media, and community-level engagement.

Research and Evaluation

Much of the near doubling of global life expectancy achieved over the past century can be attributed to advances resulting from medical research. The development of an innovative treatment for tuberculosis, for example, has significantly helped control this disease in many parts of the world. With its commitment to improving real-world health outcomes, Vital Strategies works to push research evidence of all kinds into action.
