Cloud Nine Media | Uniting to Combat NTDs: 5th Anniversary
One in seven of the world’s population suffer from neglected tropical diseases. That’s more than the population of Europe. And yet, through large-scale drug programmes in some of the poorest regions on the planet, nearly one billion people are now safer from these diseases than they were half a decade ago. Now that’s a story worth sharing. This film celebrates the 5th anniversary of a groundbreaking international coalition: Uniting to Combat Neglected Tropical Diseases. Its aim is hugely ambitious yet highly focused: to control, eradicate or eliminate ten debilitating and potentially fatal tropical diseases by 2020. Here, we document some of the incredible progress so far. “This project is the perfect example of why we do what we do,” says Steve Maud, MD at Cloud Nine Media. “Neglected tropical diseases rarely make the headlines, but they have huge impacts on vast numbers of people. But, thanks to Uniting to Combat Neglected Tropical Diseases, this is changing. And when people see the massive achievements that have already been made, they are inspired to do even more.” As part of Cloud Nine Media's long-standing relationship with Uniting to Combat Neglected Tropical Diseases, we worked in partnership with pharma giant GSK to create an introductory video for the 5th Anniversary of the London Declaration. To bring home the human stories behind this global programme, Cloud Nine Media undertook an action-packed three-week multi-location shoot in Zanzibar, India and Ghana. From this, Cloud Nine created a package of high-quality video content to share at the conference itself and to provide a pipeline for future messaging, in particular via social media. The six-minute introductory film was shown to over 800 senior government officials and world health delegates at the World Health Organisation in Geneva in April 2017. Post event a revised version was created for distribution on social media. In total, we delivered 15 films to help share the positive impacts of this life-changing programme to a wider audience.

ELIMINATING TROPICAL DISEASE. FOR GOOD.

 

One in seven of the world’s population suffer from neglected tropical diseases. That’s more than the population of Europe. And yet, through large-scale drug programmes in some of the poorest regions on the planet, nearly one billion people are now safer from these diseases than they were half a decade ago.

 

Now that’s a story worth sharing.
