BETHESDA, Md., April 12, 2023 – Precision Value & Health, the industry leader in delivering complementary, integrated and specialized capabilities across the commercialization continuum, today announced that it has acquired Makara Health, a UK-based international healthcare communications agency. The move will expand Precision’s European footprint and reinforce the company’s market growth position with its core capabilities in Europe. Founded in 2013, Makara has capabilities in learning and development, medical and patient education, PR and brand promotion, offering its diverse roster of healthcare client companies high-quality, strategic, scientifically robust programs, as well as creative delivery solutions.
With this acquisition, Makara becomes part of the Precision Value & Health team. The Makara team will work closely with PRECISIONscientia, an agency dedicated to delivering medical and scientific communications that expertly interpret and translate the science of medicine.
“Broadening the reach of our services in Europe is one of Precision Value & Health’s focused strategies in order to extend our offering to more organizations and healthcare clinicians around the world,” said Doug Fulling, president of Precision Value & Health. “Ensuring scientific rigor and accuracy for those responsible for the care of patients is a business imperative for Precision and Makara’s proven track record beautifully complements our offerings.”
The acquisition of Makara further enhances Precision Value & Health’s ability to offer pharmaceutical clients in Europe culturally aligned programs, along with tailored senior support to achieve their business objectives.
“In considering this move, it was very important for us to align with the right company – one that shared our values and would ensure that Makara would continue to offer clients fresh and robust thinking from an experienced and talented team,” said Louise Sharp, founder and chief executive officer of Makara Health. “We are excited to say that we have found this with Precision Value & Health, a company that shares our approach and our belief in the scientific story as the foundation of every pharmaceutical brand.”
Given Precision’s breadth of commercialization experience, from market intelligence platforms to value and access solutions, the integration of Makara into Precision Value & Health will provide European customers a broader array of services from Precision, bringing more comprehensive and compelling support for clients worldwide.
