At Pfizer, our purpose is to make innovative medicines and vaccines that significantly improve people’s lives. In doing so, we are helping society achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – 17 ambitious targets for positive and essential change around the world.

Pfizer’s support of the Global Goals is rooted in our belief that every individual deserves to live a longer, healthier, more productive life. At the 2016 Devex World Conference in Washington, D.C., Pfizer hosted an interactive booth showcasing our work to directly support progress toward several SDGs, including Goal 3: Good Health and Well-Being.

“We feel like as a global pharmaceutical company that when we discover, develop and bring to market medicines, we are really addressing the basic healthcare needs of the entire population,” says Caroline Roan, Pfizer’s Vice President of Corporate Responsibility. “Our challenge, of course, will be to figure out how to bring more of those medicines to more people who need them.”
