The agency is looking towards clients from the Publicis roster besides other Indian and multinational pharmaceutical companies from Asia and other clients in the health and wellness segment, said Malavika Harita, chief executive officer, Saatchi & Saatchi Health and Saatchi & Saatchi Focus in an official communiqué.
