Global Health & Development

We use words and ideas to connect what miles divide.

Global Health & Development

Solving the world’s toughest health and development problems starts with helping people understand them.

GMMB’s global health and development team specializes in transforming the science and data that inform social change into persuasive communications that make change happen.

From advocacy communications that directly influence thought leadership and policy around the world to behavior-change campaigns targeting at-risk populations, we combine deep subject matter understanding with communications expertise to humanize and spur action on complex global health issues.

We speak your language.

We are deep-reach issue experts across the full range of global health and development issues—but we are also messaging experts able to translate and effectively package data and science for a lay audience. We thrive on bringing evidence and research to life, transforming complex content and jargon into crystal-clear communications that invite everyone to the conversation.

It’s all in the details.

Rarely is an event just an event – it’s a platform to share innovation, ideas, ideals and paths forward for meaningful change. Whether it’s a press conference in Rwanda, a panel discussion at UNGA, a report launch in New Delhi or a media workshop at Davos, event planning requires precision matching of vision to execution. We have managed events in more than 30 countries, and for us, no VIP is too big, no location too remote, and no detail too small.  We build an atmosphere that inspires your audience while letting your work shine through—and we support that with digital strategies that expand your reach far beyond the four walls of your event.

Content matters. So does context. 

We know our clients want to build coalitions, but still stand out from the crowd. We know that messages are more than just words. We know that every country requires a unique approach. And we know that sometimes, reaching the right five people can make the difference that reaching the wrong 5,000 wouldn’t. Research, data and evidence are the foundation for a strong engagement effort—but the best information won’t get you anywhere unless people understand what it means and how it can be put into action to change lives for the better. We work with clients that have something to say—and we get their voices heard.

We reach your audiences where they are.

Websites. Facebook. Hi5. Twitter. Badoo. Instagram. Medium. Communicating your message consistently across your digital channels is a key part of the GMMB approach. We are experts at distilling your message into engaging social media content that makes users pay attention and take action. Our team researches digital platforms, trends, and customs in every country we work in, ensuring that your message will reach the right people at the right time. Our digital expertise includes content curation and development, social and search ad buying and influencer research that drives engagement.

Designing effective advocacy strategies is both an art and a science.

Advocacy requires evidence-driven, country-tailored approaches to change the hearts and minds of those who hold the most power and influence. Ours is not a cookie-cutter approach. From Geneva to Johannesburg and Mexico City to Hanoi, we customize our approach to the social norms, legislative environment and political climate you face. The result? We harness both the art and the science of advocacy to win votes, secure funding, and achieve change.

There’s a reason it’s called 'earned' media.

When many voices come together with one message, the result is nothing short of powerful. At GMMB, we weave consistent narratives through targeted media coverage—narratives that bring human stories to life, highlight solutions to our most pressing global issues and spur meaningful action from global and national leaders.  We understand the rapidly evolving media landscape. We have deep reach into the worlds of both print and digital media. And we have relationships with global health and development reporters in more than 30 countries built through more than a decade of experience. Time and time again, our proven strategy delivers the global, regional and country-level media coverage our clients have come to depend upon.
