Malawi is one of the Pfizer Agreement for a Healthier World’s initial five African countries that benefit.
Rwanda, Senegal, Ghana, and Uganda are among the countries that will profit from the agreement.
The good news was delivered during in the World Economic Forum, Switzerland, on Wednesday.
The agreement intends to make Pfizer’s present and future litigation medicines and vaccines available to 45 developing countries around the world.
These medicines and vaccinations, which are generally available in the United States or the European Union, will be distributed on a non-profit basis to 1.2 billion people.
Malawi President Lazarus McCarthy Chakwera remarked during the inauguration event on Wednesday morning that a market price between governments and financiers is required for successful access to universal healthcare.
“The good thing about such a Accord is that it aids low-income countries without jeopardizing their dignity and autonomy as individuals, because it is a true partnership in which Pfizer and nations like Malawi share the costs and responsibilities of producing and delivering materials that save millions of lives. That’s how all global issues should be dealt with “Chakwera stated.
President Chakwera stated that his government will ensure that all essential stakeholders are involved in the implementation of the Accord as he works to ensure a healthier Malawi.
Pfizer, a pharmaceuticals and vaccines company, is a supporter of the Accord, as is the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
Pfizer President and General Executive Officer Albert Bourla stated that the best way to achieve a healthy world is to make medicines and vaccines available to everyone.
“As we saw with the worldwide covid-19 vaccine deployment, getting the vaccine to patients is just the first step.” We’ll collaborate closely with international health leaders to improve diagnosis, education, equipment, and storage, among other things. Only by overcoming all difficulties will we be able to eliminate healthcare disparities and provide quality care to all patients,” added Bourla.
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s Bill Gates stated his commitment to ensuring that everyone, regardless of their financial situation, has access to pharmaceuticals.
“Everyone should have access to the same breakthrough life-saving treatments and vaccines, regardless of where they live,” said Bill Gates, co-founder of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
Pfizer has pledged 23 drugs and vaccines to treat infectious diseases, cancer, and uncommon inflammatory diseases as part of the Accord.
In order to regulate the global economy, the Malawian leader urged that significant investment be made in fixing health system inadequacies and inequities in countries like Malawi.
President Chakwera’s petition appears to have prompted the Pfizer Agreement for Investing in a Healthier World.
