Care-A-Van has been criss-crossing Malaysia for the last 10 years, offering medical accessibility to the less fortunate. Conceived in 1998 and launched in August 1999 to coincide with Pfizer’s 150th and Pfizer Malaysia’s 35th anniversary respectively, it was the first big scale venture in Malaysia by any pharmaceutical firm. We provided monetary and human resources to fill unmet medical needs of those living in the semi-urban and rural areas nationwide.
Endorsed by the Malaysian Ministry of Health and assisted by physicians and employee volunteers from Pfizer, the blue and white van goes out on a mission every two weeks to provide free health screening and health talks on disease prevention and management.
So far, the Pfizer Care-A-Van has screened more than 100,000 Malaysians in more than 500 locations. Today, the Care-A-Van remains one of the country’s longest-running community health initiatives.
