Global Health Fellows
Pfizer’s Global Health Fellow program connects colleagues with programs in the developing world to help improve health in communities worldwide.
Pfizer colleagues commit to up to six-month assignments working with non-government organisations (NGOs) addressing HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria, and other devastating diseases in developing countries.
Fellowship assignments are designed by our partners according to their needs, and Pfizer funds the Fellows' transportation, lodging and other expenses while maintaining their positions within the company. During their assignments, colleagues train and support their local counterparts, transferring skills so that the important contributions they make are sustainable over time.
Since 2003, 194 Global Health Fellows – including seven colleagues from Pfizer Australia – have been selected to work with NGOs in 38 countries to deliver healthcare and health system support to those in need around the world. These Fellows include Pfizer physicians, nurses, epidemiologists, laboratory technicians, marketing managers, financial administrators, and health educators.
Community Engagement in Australia
Our community engagement program encourages employees to become involved with the community by volunteering their time to work with community organisations. Pfizer Australia provides charitable support to organisations, while colleagues across the country use their corporate volunteer days to assist organisations.
