FCB-Ulka Healthcare wins Abbott Pharma’s Brufen, Digene and J&J’s Vicryl accounts

FCB-Ulka Healthcare, part of FCB Healthcare Wordlwide, has bagged two accounts – Abbott Pharma brands Brufen and Digene, and Johnson & Johnson’s Vicryl. The account size of these wins could not be ascertained. FCB-Ulka HealthCare will devise doctoral contact programmes and communication strategies to further strengthen all three brands and increase their marketshare, therefore, media spends is not likely to be high.

The two accounts come close on the heels of a spate of account wins by FCB Healthcare Worldwide this year. The agency was awarded the HealthCare Agency of The Year Award, in addition to the prestigious Doctor’s Choice Award.

Abbott has assigned FCB-Ulka HealthCare its two flagship brands Brufen and Digene. The agency will work on building on the strengths of these two brands.
