Pfizer (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd.

– Longest-serving FREE mobile health screening CSR program across the whole of Malaysia targeting underserved and underprivileged communities,

Pfizer Malaysia’s Care-A-Van was launched in 1998. Since then, it has accelerated around Malaysia establishing itself as one of Malaysia’s longest-running mobile health resource offering free health screenings to underserved communities including urban poor as well as remote populations. To-date, the Care-A-Van team of almost 1070 volunteers has touched the lives of over 156,000 Malaysians across 800 locations.

Through our health screening events, a total of 104,594 data were available for analysis with 84,197 adult participants.1 Alarmingly, 44% were overweight and obese. Only 13.6% of adults reported existing hypertension but a larger 24.4% were found with high blood pressure during screening. Similar trend was found when only 7.6% reported existing hypercholesterolemia but 38% were screened with high cholesterol. These worrying numbers are consistent with the findings of National Health and Morbidity Survey 2019.2 Further health education and screening must be conducted to empower Malaysians to take charge of their health.

With endorsement by the Ministry of Health and strengthened by strategic partnerships from similarly aspired organizations including academic institutions, NGOs and patient advocacy groups, Care-A-Van is dedicated to fulfilling the unmet needs of the population. Care-A-Van is continuously expanding and improving its services by embarking into breast cancer and mental health screening, as well as leveraging our invaluable data and resources to conduct substantial research with multiple stakeholders.

Through these efforts and the tagline “Caring for Malaysia”, Care-A-Van is proud to drive Pfizer’s purpose of bringing Breakthroughs that Change Patients’ Lives and supporting Malaysia’s efforts to reach the Sustainable Development Goal of ensuring healthy lives and promote well-being for all.
