Asma en Español: Creating an Asthma Resource Center for the Hispanic Community

Nearly three million Hispanic Americans have asthma, but a community survey by Merck and the Asthma & Allergy Foundation of America found limited levels of disease awareness and control. Merck enlisted Hill & Knowlton to raise awareness and help Hispanic patients/caregivers with asthma management. For the campaign, H&K developed AsmaEnEspañol.com, a Spanish-language asthma resource center that drove thousands of patients online, where they downloaded tools to help facilitate patient-physician dialogue. H&K recruited a spokesperson and participated in grassroots initiatives, such as Spanish health events. The campaign reinforced Merck’s image as a pioneering company committed to serving patients in need.
