Pfizer Philippines - 50th Anniversary in
The story of Pfizer Philippines can be traced
back to 1954 when it registered as a corporation with a total of 9
employees. Its entry into the pharmaceutical industry was not
without challenges as the business climate in country during the
50's proved to be volatile. Driven by dynamic leadership and
pioneering spirit, the local team sought to provide value to the
community through the business.
Since then, Pfizer emerged from being a small
distribution company to currently being the second largest
pharmaceutical company in the country. It has worked tirelessly over
the past five decades to make available various innovative, safe and
effective products which help in the treatment of serious,
life-threatening diseases as well as common, everyday ailments. The
company is determined to continue to save lives, prevent diseases
and improve the quality of life of Filipinos.
Pfizer's commitment to improving lives goes
beyond developing innovative medicines. Pfizer has partnered with
government and various private organizations to provide better
access to healthcare especially for needy and medically underserved
communities. It launched the Leaders for Health program, in
partnership with the Department of Health and the Ateneo Graduate
School of Business, to train and develop local government officials
and community leaders, and to provide effective leadership in
various levels of the Philippine health care system.
The company supports the continuing medical
education of doctors, allied medical professionals and medical
students through the establishment of eight medical information
centers in medical institutions and the development of the websites
of over 40 medical societies and institutions.
Partnering with private and public
organizations, Pfizer has embarked on advocacy campaigns that will
increase awareness on certain diseases such as diabetes, cancer,
celebral palsy and depression. It is also committed" to contributing
to society through its projects that promote reading among the youth
and increase domestic tourism.

Filipinos in the decades ahead. With its products, top-ranked sales
