Media Moguls to handle ethnic organ donation campaign

NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) has appointed specialist agency Media Moguls to create a campaign to raise awareness about organ donation amongst South Asian and Black communities in the UK.

The campaign aims to challenge the misconceptions surrounding organ donation, increase awareness about the lack of South Asian and Black donors and encourage people to join the NHS Organ Donor Register.

The campaign will launch at the end of January and will include face-to-face activity, celebrity support and partnerships with key ethnic media.

Because of the shortage of compatible donors, South Asian and Black patients wait twice as long as white patients for a kidney transplant, on average.

Media Moguls is an ethnic marketing specialist agency and previously designed and implemented the Department of Health’s first ever South Asian Organ Donation campaign between 1998 and 2003.

The campaign will complement NHSBT’s national ‘Prove It’ organ donation campaign, which started in November 2009.

Anjna Raheja, managing director of Media Moguls says: “Using our in-depth cultural knowledge and understanding we can raise awareness by bringing the issue to light.”
