Grants to USA and International organizations to improve health care and patient outcomes in underserved communities. Funding is intended for programs addressing antimicrobial therapy inequities related to social determinants. The aim of the projects will be interventions inside hospital settings.

Pfizer Global Medical Grants (GMG) supports the global healthcare community’s independent initiatives (e.g., research, quality improvement, or education) to improve patient outcomes in areas of unmet medical need that are aligned with Pfizer’s medical and/or scientific strategies. One such strategic priority is decreasing the disproportionate burden of poor health outcomes faced by patients with lower socioeconomic status and/or from underserved populations, who receive healthcare in resource-limited centers within high-income countries, specifically to address health inequities relating to treatment of infectious diseases. 

The purpose of this RFP is to solicit programs that have identified a disparity related to socioeconomic factors (such as race, culture, gender, and age) within resource-limited healthcare centers that disproportionately impacts appropriate antimicrobial use (antimicrobial stewardship) for that socioeconomic population, and that propose an intervention to address the disparity, to improve measurable patient outcomes for these underserved patient communities.
