Round Table of Health Inclusivity


Brand | Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

To provoke and inform critical discussions around Health Inclusivity, Haleon presents the Round Table of Health Inclusivity. Using data from 40 countries and the lived experiences of people held back from everyday health, the table brings the voices and statistics of the many people left behind by the decisions of the few into the conversation.

The Challenge

Too many people are held back from better everyday health. It’s being driven by a lack of knowledge, understanding and support, as well as bias and underrepresentation in healthcare systems.

To tackle this challenge, Haleon needed to:  

  • Launch the Health Inclusivity Index by Economist Impact
  • Generate reach by creating a sense of urgency amongst decision makers whose actions can make a measurable difference to health inclusivity.
  • Make it human by including people who experience exclusion.

The Strategy


Engage with policymakers, NGOs, Haleon colleagues and health professionals.   

Strategic Approach:

To gain the most amount of attention for the Health Inclusivity Index by Economist Impact at launch, we created a campaign centrepiece which represented both literally and metaphorically the challenges of health inclusivity, bringing a range of voices and  provocative data to the table to inspire action. 

By bringing the stories of those who experience bias and prejudice to the table, we made people who experience health exclusion the protagonists of the healthcare conversation, putting them at the centre of the physical and metaphorical round table for the first time.    

The Execution

The table’s physical & digital design is designed for inclusivity. A tangible interface made it easier for those with intellectual and physical disabilities to understand and absorb information.

The tabletop works as a canvas enabling people to interact with the countries, data from Economist Impact’s Health Inclusivity Index, films & stories of the project.

Our Panel event at the Wellcome Collection in London set out to challenge how we all think & feel about health. It featured keynote speakers who developed the index, experts in health inclusivity who have personally experienced exclusion in some way, the CEO of Haleon & shared lived experiences from Human Library ‘books’.

An earned campaign focussed on a key finding, that inclusive health policies are linked to people living longer-healthier lives & amplified this through LinkedIn channels.

The Index & the Table of Health Inclusivity featured on Haleon’s website & through a paid-first social campaign targeting key audiences.
