The Pfizer Corporate Affairs Multicultural Health Equity Collective: A Catalyst for Change
What is the Multicultural Health Equity Collective?
The Pfizer Multicultural Health Equity Collective (MHEC) focuses on helping to improve health equity across ethnic groups and other underrepresented communities facing significant health disparities.
The MHEC team works in partnership with key groups across the US – including patient advocacy organizations, healthcare provider associations, community groups, and legislative caucuses – to address health disparities among the most vulnerable populations through unique community programming and outreach. In 2019 alone, the MHEC engaged with more than 40 organizations and supported nearly 70 individual events or activities across the country.
Our work is guided by the Pfizer Multicultural Advisory Council (PMAC). The PMAC is a dynamic group of leaders from organizations that help inform the work of the MHEC and has enhanced Pfizer’s level of cultural competency in reaching underrepresented communities. The PMAC engages with Pfizer on important health and policy issues and provides counsel on specific Pfizer initiatives.
