For Pfizer, Sustainable Development Goal 3: Good Health and Well-Being, is inextricably linked to our belief that every individual deserves to lead a long, healthy and productive life. Good health is fundamental to advancing all of the 17 SDGs, each of which is connected to advances in public health.
Around the world, health entrepreneurs and social enterprises are pioneering innovative, locally driven solutions that have the potential to transform healthcare for underserved communities. These young organizations are starting small but thinking big, and private sector companies like Pfizer can play an important role in helping them grow. However, we must also realize that, in today’s complex health landscape, successful collaboration requires more than financial support.

Starting your own business can be an exciting and rewarding experience. But we hear from small business owners time and time again that it is also very daunting. Starting an online business involves planning, making key financial decisions, and setting up an online store. And once the business is up and running, there’s cash flow to monitor, inventory to track, and the often tedious process of finding capital to grow.
At Pfizer, we believe our business and societal missions are the same: ensuring all individuals everywhere have access to quality medicines, vaccines and health care, and the opportunity to lead healthy lives. Every day, we strive to use our full resources – our people, products and funding – to find new ways to positively impact the health of people around the world and across their lifespan.
