|Pfizer is ranked first across stewardship metrics. Through a pilot established in 2019, Pfizer fully decoupled sales bonuses from volumes for antibacterial and antifungal medicines in the UK and partially decoupled bonuses from sales volumes in other countries. Pfizer was also recognized as the first company to share raw data on resistance collected via our open-access ATLAS surveillance program.1|
|Pfizer is a leading company when it comes to filing relevant on-patented products for registration in low- and middle-income countries and taking steps to ensure continuous supply.1|
|Pfizer is one of the few large research-based pharmaceutical companies still active in R&D for antibacterial medicines and vaccines.1|
|Pfizer has a comprehensive environmental risk-management strategy for our manufacturing sites, and those of our suppliers, to limit AMR.1|
We have a variety of educational resources aimed at supporting Healthcare Professsionals looking to enhance their knowledge of AMR and Stewardship.
The Access to Medicine Foundation published its 2020 Antimicrobial Resistance Benchmark in February 2020. The bi-yearly report evaluates our industry’s progress in the fight against antimicrobial resistance (AMR). The Foundation's Benchmark provides an independent comparison of 30 pharmaceutical research companies' efforts to curb AMR across three research areas: research and development, manufacturing and production, and appropriate access and stewardship.
The Access to Medicine Foundation is an independent non-profit organization based in the Netherlands. It aims to advance access to medicine in low- and middle-income countries by stimulating and guiding the pharmaceutical industry to play a greater role in improving access to medicine.1
We are proud to sponsor a collaboration with the British Society for Antimicrobial Chemotherapy and the University of Dundee on the development of an online educational course for healthcare professionals on antibiotic stewardship.2 Pfizer were the main consortium sponsor for the BSAC Antimicrobial Stewardship (AMS) MOOC when it launched in 2015, over 53,500 participants have enrolled for the AMS MOOC from over 200 countries. In addition, the AMS MOOC has been translated into a number of languages including Russian, Chinese and Portuguese. The AMS MOOC is just one of the BSAC educational programmes that Pfizer have sponsored.
Launched in 2017, the Pfizer UK Antibiotic Susceptibility Testing (AST) programme provides NHS Trusts access to AST diagnostics in order to ensure responsible prescribing and support appropriate stewardship of our anti-infectives. The AST programme allows clinicians to inform their patient therapy decisions using commercially available AST diagnostic tests, and therefore to prescribe antibiotics appropriately. This will also help to protect the useful life of the antibiotic (from antibiotic resistance) by ensuring hospitals can exert appropriate stewardship.
If you would like to speak with one of the Pfizer team about how we can provide additional support, please contact us here to request a call back or email.
