The primary goal of the portal is to raise awareness about cysticercosis and educate people about preventive measures, including vaccination, to control its spread. By providing complete information, the initiative aims to empower individuals and communities to take proactive steps towards disease prevention.


InfocusRx developed a user-friendly website,, as the central platform for sharing information about cysticercosis. The website offers easy access to educational resources, including articles, publications, and interactive tools, to educate audience about the disease and its prevention.


To drive engagement and encourage action, InfocusRx employed various communication strategies. These included leveraging social media platforms to spread awareness, collaborating with healthcare professionals to endorse the initiative, encourage visitors to take a pledge “let us choose vaccinated pork”, and utilizing compelling messaging to motivate visitors to take preventive measures and vaccination.
