Mankind Pharma and ADK-Fortune urge you to rise above the gender bias
Prega News – a pregnancy detection kit, manufactured and marketed by Mankind Pharmaceuticals, is a category leader. For years, it has been bringing ‘good news’ to soon to be mothers. And, to take this relationship forward, Prega News launched its new campaign #preganewsmeansgoodnews targeting the Indian families and their regressive mindsets.
Gender inequality is a pertinent issue prevailing all over the world; however, its presence in India is far more complex. The preference for a boy over a girl has been deeply instituted in the Indian minds which leads to nothing but grave consequences that curbs the nation’s growth. But, with this new initiative, Mankind Pharma and ADK-Fortune hope to bring a change in people’s outlook. They request their audiences to wish for a healthy child, irrespective of their child’s sex.
Commenting on the campaign, Mr. Rajeev Juneja, CEO, Mankind Pharma, said that “Prega News is not just a category leader, but also a thought leader. In the past, we have struck a chord with our consumers through our forward thinking. This time with our campaign we have tried to break another stereotype. Our society has been gender biased for a long period now and it is high time we get over it.”
The campaign has been conceptualized and executed by ADK Fortune. Akashneel Dasgupta, NCD, adds “When a child is about to be born in our society, what everyone wishes for is a baby boy. With our initiative #preganewsmeansgoodnews, we are urging people to wish only for a healthy child and mother. Nothing else.”
The campaign, which was released a week before Mother’s Day, was supported with other communication material apart from the film. You can obtain more information about the campaign from Prega News’ website and its Facebook page.
