In the Phillippines, the lives of those living with a number of different conditions – amongst which HIV/AIDS is only one – is often a struggle as they’re considered taboo by many. Procter & Gamble brand, Vicks, launched the campaign A Touch of Care to address these taboos: “The purpose of the Vicks brand is rooted in care. With our #TouchOfCare campaign, we aim to share stories where people have transformed [the] lives of others through their extraordinary acts of care. The story of ‘Agnes’ was one such story which just needed to be told,” said Akhilesh Negi, P&G brand director, healthcare, APAC.
Watch the video below to see who Agnes is and why her story is extraordinary.
The campaign supports Project Red Ribbon (associated with the World Health Organization and UNAIDS) and the Duyan Programme, which provides care and support to children living with HIV in the Philippines.
