Pfizer commits to help infant immunization, education, training and advocacy programs on maternal and infant health, development of intermittent preventative treatment for malaria in pregnant women
Description/achievement of initiative

Pfizer commits through ongoing programs and partnerships to support the UN Secretary General's Every Woman, Every Child objectives by helping address health priorities in the following areas: infant immunization for the prevention of pneumococcal disease; education, training and advocacy programs on maternal and infant health; development of intermittent preventative treatment for malaria in pregnant women; infant and young child nutrition; healthcare system capacity building; and sustainable commercial models for products addressing the needs of women and children in developing countries. One of the primary ways Pfizer supports the health priority of infant immunization for the prevention of pneumococcal disease is by acting as a major supplier to the Advanced Market Commitment (AMC). In 2010, Pfizer entered into a 10-year agreement with UNICEF to provide up to 300 million doses of Prevenar 13 to infants and young children in the poorest countries of the world at a deeply discounted price. Other Pfizer initiatives include supporting the needs of women and children in developing countries by working with institutional buyers, which purchase medicines in bulk and distribute them to some of the world's neediest patients; and training nurses who provide primary and secondary prevention services to women and children in disadvantaged populations.
