Pfizer announces new round of Global Health Fellows

17th January 2008

Pfizer has announced that its Global Health Fellow scheme will move into its eighth round with 28 colleagues partnering with non-governmental and multi-lateral organisations in developing countries to contribute to health care infrastructure programmes.

The company states that the scheme is a unique public-private partnership in that it focuses on skills-based international volunteerism.

Pfizer chairman and chief executive officer Jeff Kindler confirmed that the programme provides recipients with valuable skills and expertise from Pfizer employees.

“Pfizer Global Health Fellows are able to help address critical needs of the underserved while learning from our on-the-ground partners to better anticipate and drive a positive, long-term impact on global health,” he added.

Round eight fellows will be recruited from North America, Europe and Asia and will work supporting a variety of organisations in sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, the Caribbean and Europe.

They will all continue the tradition of the scheme and apply their skills in science, pharmacology and laboratory management to train researchers and health care providers as well as upgrading facilities and IT structures.

Earlier this month, Pfizer welcomed a new senior vice-president of worldwide communications and chief communications officer with the appointment of Sally Susman who has overall responsibility for the company’s global communications.
