Description of partnership activities and how they address needs and challenges.

Since 2003, Pfizer’s signature skills-based volunteering program, Global Health Fellows, has harnessed the power of our most valuable asset – our people – enabling colleagues to lend their skills to global health organizations working to strengthen health systems and close the health equity gap.

Through short-term projects available in-person, virtually and in hybrid settings, Pfizer colleagues from around the world with diverse professional backgrounds – including supply chain, marketing and communications, digital and more – apply their skills to help address community-specific needs and build upon Pfizer’s commitment of helping to drive sustainable healthcare solutions worldwide.

To date, more than 850 Pfizer colleagues have contributed their skills to 110 partners that are working to advance health equity through various healthcare capacity building initiatives, collectively volunteering over 420K hours across 51 countries.

Together, we are working to deliver meaningful solutions that expand access to healthcare and help reduce global inequities for today, tomorrow—and the future.
