DPAA has been at the forefront of addressing issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The organization, in collaboration with independent ad agency Madwell, recently launched a ‘We Are the Countervirus‘ PSA campaign on out-of-home screens in the U.S., Canada, U.K., EMEA, Asia and additional parts of the globe. The campaign harnesses the power of digital OOH on a global scale plus WHO and CDC messaging in an impactful fashion to share information on slowing the spread of COVID-19 by providing actionable, clear steps to #flatteningthecurve.
