FullCare Campaign

SMC conducted a special campaign during January 22-23, 2023 to increase the FullCare brand awareness highlighting its key features and benefits targeting the chemists across the country. In order to observe the campaign and inspire the field forces, GM Sales, Addl GM, Program Operations, Head of Regions and other officials visited different network and non-network outlets during the campaign. It is to be noted that SMC introduced FullCare for pregnant women in 2021 for the first time in Bangladesh. FullCare contains 15 micronutrients recommended for use during pregnancy to reduce Low Birth Weight and pre-term birth. FullCare has been endorsed by the leaders of OGSB (Obstetricians and Gynaecological Society of Bangladesh) for its effectiveness and efficacy. This 2-day long campaign was jointly implemented by the field forces of SMC and SMC EL. The field forces visited the traders in person and briefed them about the benefits of FullCare and ensured product distribution as well.
