Expanding Access to Medicines


Bridging the Gap to Help Patients Get the Medicine They Need

Pfizer Corporate Responsibility develops programs that help expand global access to medicines by providing direct assistance to underserved populations. Our initiatives include providing product donations and steep discounts that help patients access the medicine they need. We also collaborate with Pfizer business teams and nonprofit organizations to help shape sustainable business models that address affordability and the vast differences in economies around the world.

These are the Signature Programs that Drive our Efforts

In 1998, Pfizer and the Edna McConnell Clark Foundation co-established the International Trachoma Initiative (ITI) to help end the suffering and poverty caused by trachoma, an infectious eye disease that causes blindness.
First launched in South Africa in 2000, the Diflucan Partnership Program helps provide treatment for AIDS-related fungal infections in developing countries around the world where HIV/AIDS is most prevalent.
For more than 25 years, Pfizer has offered prescription assistance programs to the US to help eligible patients get access to their Pfizer medicines. Today, this assistance is provided through Pfizer RxPathways®1, which helps eligible patients get access to their Pfizer medicines by offering a range of support services, including insurance counseling, co-pay help, providing free Pfizer medicines or at a savings, and more.
