Pfizer launches Mobilise against Malaria initiative

10th September 2007

Pfizer has launched a new initiative which aims to eradicate malaria, the company reveals.

The Mobilise against Malaria scheme aims to improve both access to treatment and education of the disease in Kenya, Ghana and Senegal.

In Kenya, this is to focus on antenatal classes, while in Ghana the emphasis is to be on training for licensed chemical sellers in 7,000 retail outlets across the country.

Karl Lintel, Pfizer’s regional director for Africa, explains: “Our partners are leaders in the malaria community and we are pleased to support their outstanding work.

“Pfizer is committed to sharing best practices and deploying its assets – research and development, medicines, funds and its people.”

The five-year project is expected to conclude in 2011, according to the company.

Pfizer was founded by Charles Pfizer and Charles Erhart in 1849 and claims that its company history has included being involved in the development of medical “miracle” penicillin.
