GLOBALHealthPR has boosted its Asia-Pacific reach with the addition of Spurwing Communications to its independent med comms network.

The Singapore-based strategic communications agency was founded in 2015 by managing partner Emma Thompson.

She said: "Spurwing Communications blends global and regional healthcare experience with local insights to advise our clients how to translate the nuances of the sector into compelling stakeholder engagement campaigns and investor relations strategies.”

Tim Goddard, executive VP of GLOBALHealthPR, added: "In this region where agencies are striving to ride a wave of innovation in the health and life sciences sector, Spurwing Communications stands head and shoulders above the competition, having earned an impeccable reputation amongst clients and industry professionals alike."
