Takeda’s Vaccine Business Unit was asked to generate excitement among employees around their mission to develop innovative vaccines to fight infectious diseases, and to draw attention to the contributions Takeda makes to improve global public health. W2O created a video inspired by a true story about a young girl who survived dengue; this showcased the potential of Takeda’s dengue vaccine candidate and its impact on global health. The video lets the audience see the impact of dengue through a child’s eyes. It captivated the audience and conveyed the need to protect the world from this illness.
