Campaign overview

NHS Waltham Forest was severely under-performing in chlamydia screening and had just five months to turn things around. In consultation with young people and local stakeholders, the interactive 'Frisky not Risky' campaign was developed to take screening directly into schools and colleges, while supporting outreach teams to engage effectively with young people. These resulted in a staggering 841 per cent increase in screening among the target population and propelled the PCT to become the best in the country.

Judges' comments

"The results were remarkable – with one in three young people being screened, this was a very effective social marketing campaign indeed and achieved exceptional impact in a short space of time in a hard-to-change market."
