Healthy Communities

The biopharmaceutical company Pfizer is collaborating with the international nonprofit organization Population Services International (PSI) on their joint initiative Healthy Communities. This U.S. $1 million collaboration will improve the diagnosis and treatment of hypertension, a condition that can often lead to stroke and impacts one-quarter of all adults in Myanmar and Vietnam as a leading cause of mortality. The Healthy Communities program will provide sustainable and scalable models of hypertension management to these underserved communities by aiming to screen more than 500,000 people and train up to 400 healthcare workers in 360 private sector health facilities.

Pfizer is proud to be working with Population Services International and supporting Access Accelerated to help reducing  premature deaths from non-communicable diseases by 2030.

"Through this partnership we are helping to improve the diagnosis and treatment of hypertension, which ultimately can aid in preventing severe illness and saving lives."
