Access to safe, voluntary family planning can empower women and helps support optimal health decision-making for themselves and their families.
The Pfizer Foundation* is proud to support the Healthy Families, Healthy Futures grants, an innovative integrated healthcare delivery program that enables women to receive family planning at the same time their children are vaccinated, reducing clinic visits and creating opportunities to access care where there may be limited resources and women have little time to spend on healthcare.
At Pfizer, we believe that women should be empowered to make health decisions that are right for them and their families. We are honored to share the powerful story of one individual receiving family planning services through the Pfizer Foundation’s* partnership with World Vision: Susan, a wife and mother of five children in rural West Pokot, Kenya.
On International Day of Rural Women, we recognize the challenges women in remote and underserved communities around the world face in accessing health services for themselves and their families. It’s especially important to recognize those barriers while also continuing to propel ourselves and our partners forward in delivering unique solutions to help overcome them.
