The Round Table of Health Inclusivity

Gold Honor in Public Health


Haleon’s mission is to deliver better everyday health with humanity.  

The brand is committed to helping tackle challenges to health inclusivity by empowering 50 million people a year to be more included in opportunities for better everyday health by 2025.   

Haleon aims to establish a thought leadership position on health inclusivity and convene and catalyse action to improve it. To set the foundation, it supported the world’s first health inclusivity index by Economist Impact which measures the inclusiveness of healthcare systems across 40 countries worldwide.    


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.  


Strategy and Execution


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

To gain the most amount of attention for the Health Inclusivity Index, we created a campaign centrepiece moment which represented both literally and metaphorically the challenges of inclusivity and accessibility of health data that the Index promotes.    

  Sharing stories of people who experience bias and prejudice, we made people who experience health exclusion the protagonists of the healthcare conversation, putting them at the centre of the ‘round table’ for the first time.     

The table was built using research and data from Economist Impact’s world first Inclusivity Index and personal stories from The Human Library.  

It was designed to share those stories in the most accessible way possible, creating a living example of how the world could and should design for inclusivity, while challenging healthcare decision-makers to consider the unrepresented.   

The table’s physical and digital design created a tangible interface, making it easier for people with intellectual and physical disabilities to access and understand the information.   


Guests were also able to explore the online hub for the Index, where they could dig deeper into the findings to understand how health inclusivity is measured across 40 countries.    

We hosted a panel event at Wellcome Collection, a free museum and library in London that aims to challenge how we all think and feel about health.    

It featured keynote speakers who developed the index, an expert in health inclusivity, the CEO of Haleon, and showed lived experiences from ‘Human Library’.   

Internal engagement was also critical in order to bring colleagues on the journey and drive health inclusivity as a key ambition throughout the business.   

We created communications packs featuring messaging about the health inclusivity index alongside a multitude of assets to promote conversation and engagement.
