TORONTO, June 26, 2015 /CNW/ - Mediaplanet announces the distribution of
its first cross-platform edition of "Children's Health", raising awareness about various children's health issues and
highlighting the latest in treatments available in Canada.
The print component of "Children's Health" was distributed within the
June 26th edition of The Toronto Star, with a circulation of approximately 230,000 copies and an estimated
readership of 622,000. The digital component is distributed nationally
through a vast social media strategy and across a network of top news
sites and partner outlets. To explore the digital version of the
campaign please visit, www.personalhealthnews.ca.
A campaign highlight focuses on vaccine hesitancy, dispelling the myths
so parents can make more informed choices regarding their child's
vaccination. Dr. Noni MacDonald, Professor of Paediatrics at Dalhousie
University, and Dr. Eve Dubé, medical anthropologist at the the
Institut National de Santé Publique du Québec, educate parents about
the efficacy and safety of vaccines, as well as the very real dangers
of vaccine-preventable diseases. They not only not address the common
misconceptions surrounding vaccines, but they also raise awareness
about how vaccination is a community issue, not a private one, and
encourage parents to talk to their health care providers to learn
accurate information about vaccination in Canada.
This campaign was made possible with the support of Children's Wish
Foundation, Stallergenes, Sanofi, GSK, Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals,
Merck, Unicef, Canadian Society of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, and
Mediaplanet is the leading independent publisher of content-marketing
campaigns covering a variety of topics and industries. We turn consumer
interest into action by providing readers with motivational editorial,
pairing it with relevant advertisers, and distributing it within top
newspapers and online platforms around the world.
