When mothers held up their infants to receive a promising experimental malaria vaccine in Bagamoyo, Tanzania, Burness Communications was there. When health ministers from across Latin America issued a call for improved treatment of childhood diarrheal diseases; when the Government of Vietnam launched a nation-wide campaign to end blindness caused by trachoma; when inmates in a high-security Mexican prison learned the facts about HIV and shared their stories with policy makers and journalists, Burness was there.
For more than 15 years, Burness Communications has been working with global health organizations and champions to communicate the issues that mean life or death to millions around the world. We work with our clients to develop the messages, frame the campaigns, tell the stories, and promote them all on a global scale.
Our work has helped build support for investments in research and life-saving public health interventions. We have tackled issues including the development of a malaria vaccine and the expansion of existing childhood vaccine delivery. We have worked to amplify our clients’ voices in the struggle for increased laboratory diagnostic capacity; improved disease surveillance and diagnostics; funding for basic biomedical research, and formulation of evidence-based global health policy for fighting HIV and tuberculosis. At the core of this work has been the effort to make the fruits of scientific progress available to all who would benefit—particularly the millions of children who die each year from preventable diseases.
