About Evoke Incisive Health
Evoke Incisive Health is a global, award-winning health policy and public affairs consultancy.
At Evoke Incisive Health, we help our clients understand health policy environments and advise them on how they can cut through the noise with their policy and communications strategies. We are creative, ambitious and dedicated and if you are too, then we can offer you a sector-leading opportunity to grow your skills and expertise.
The International health policy team works with global and regional healthcare companies and organisations to support global policy landscaping, policy and public affairs strategy and narrative development, policy research and report writing, global policy engagement and advocacy coalition building and capability development for different policy teams. We deliver the results that matter for our clients and - ultimately - for the patients they serve.
In 2021 we joined the Evoke group, allying with healthcare PR, marketing, advertising and digital agencies to multiply the impact of healthcare communications for our clients.
