For nearly 65 years, the Pfizer Foundation has been working to expand health care access for people around the world. The impact of this work is significant and far-reaching, helping underserved individuals from diverse backgrounds in remote corners of the globe.

Through the Pfizer Foundation’s global health strategy, we provide grant and investment funding to support organizations and social entrepreneurs in an effort to improve health care delivery in low- and middle-income countries and increase access to health care for the most underserved communities. These grants and investments focus on three key areas:

  • Improving health care delivery by supporting innovative and sustainable approaches to improving health systems
  • Addressing key barriers that prevent women and children from receiving the care they need, with a focus on improving access to immunization and family planning services
  • Supporting efforts to lessen the burden of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) by improving prevention and early diagnosis capabilities and increasing the capacity of community health centers
