UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE AWARENESS CAMPAIGN
- The objective is to introduce the concept of Universal Healthcare.
- To make aware of the salient benefits to the public and how they can take advantage of the service.
Government came into power with the slogan, “Ogaatheri Sarukaaru”. Within this initiative, the government prioritized the provision of free health care to the most vulnerable population, including people 65+, disabled, and the single parents, as well as build the foundation of health insurance through “Madhana Program”, to the rest of the population.
Between 2008 and 2011, government laid the foundation to empower the population so they become responsible and become an integral part of providing for their own wellbeing, i.e. “Ogaatheri Mujutha”, through taxation.
In 2012, as the continuation of this initiative, the government is going to introduce “Universal Health care”, which means universal health coverage to every Maldivian citizen. This meant that the public has taken responsibility for the health of the whole nation, and provide an equitable health service to the whole of society. Creating a secure and healthy society to build a more viable and sustainable future for all.

figure 2. visual concept for the campaign
The Umbrella symbolizes “health coverage”, and “caring”. Initially the government provides the protective cover for the most vulnerable, hence symbolized with a yellow umbrella. Then in 2012, the work and effort between those 3 years has enable the government to facilitate a mechanism where such initiatives can be sustained by making the people who receive the coverage part of the mechanism of its provision, hence enabling equitable health care for all. Thus the launch of “Universal Health care coverage for all, by the people for the people”.
Brand Name and Slogan
The name for the service, should signify the idea of universal health care, in a way which is unique as well as relevant locally. The name, should be relevant but also symbolize a sense of novelty, that this is a totally new service.
The visual logo was developed by combining two symbols which defines the core ideas behind Aasandha. firstly the idea of health coverage, symbolised by an Umbrella and secondly the government core policy which this service falls under, which is to provide a structure for social welfare, i.e. “Caring society”, symbolised as a “heart”.
Launch TV Spot:
The TV Spot will be used to introduce the idea of universal health care, and to show how this is a culmination of governments continual effort to empower and build a healthy society.
The TV sport will use the symbols similar to the ones used in the figure 2. Where it will show a linear narrative timeline of how government from its first initiative of providing free health care to the most vulnerable, has enabled to develop a mechanism to provide the same service to all citizens, hence culminating with the slogan: “Ogaatheru Mujuthama, Dhiriulhumuge hifaseyhakan emmehneh”.
The last scene will show , how every individual gives shade to the person next to them, hence creating a “network of caring”.
