This was the report on World Allergy Week received from Oz HealthCare communications:

Dear All
We hope this email finds you well!

World Allergy Week is now at an end and we would like to thank you for employing the services of Oz Healthcare Communications to assist the Allergy Society of South Africa (ALLSA) with its World Allergy Week publicity in South Africa.
We are currently collecting and analysing the data related to the publicity campaign and we will have this information in the form of a media report to you soonest - but no later than the 29th April 2013 as was agreed.
For now we can provide the following summary:

Radio: 30 confirmed and completed slots

Newspaper: 5 national outlets confirmed and completed pieces

Online: 6 confirmed and placed

We are currently completing our media monitoring which will enable us to pick up on further outlets that we have not already included in the above summary. The final report will include an analysis of the publicity campaign as well as clippings and access to all the newspaper articles and radio interviews that did take place.

We would like to thank Prof Robin Green, Prof Sharon Kling, Prof Mike Levin, Prof Sam Risenga, Dr Claudia Gray and Dr Andre van Niekerk from ALLSA who assisted Oz by being available at short notice ā€“ without them these outputs would not have been possible.

Thank you once again for this opportunity ā€“ we look forward to continuing our association with ALLSA.

Warm Regards
Lynne Zurnamer
