At Pfizer, we realize no one organization or corporation can solve all of today’s complex healthcare challenges. That’s why we seek to combine our resources with the expertise of a range of diverse partners – including NGOs, governments and social entrepreneurs – to catalyze creative approaches to accelerating progress and breaking down healthcare barriers. In doing so, we are directly supporting progress toward several of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), including Goal 17: Partnerships for the Goals.

Many people take their eyeglasses for granted. And yet, 2.5 billion people around the world, largely in developing countries, live with poor vision because they lack access to eyeglasses, hindering their ability to succeed in school or be productive at work. While the benefits are clear, providing eyeglasses to 2.5 billion people is a challenge, requiring multi-faceted action from a cross-sector group of organizations including healthcare systems, private sector eyeglass manufacturers and retailers, NGOs and social enterprises, and policymakers.
