Impact: Supporting Patients Through Grants
Although great progress has been made in the treatment and care of breast cancer patients, there is still more work to be done. Our Global Medical Grant programs support independent research, quality improvement, and education initiatives that fill evidence gaps, improve quality of care, and provide independent medical and patient education initiatives around the world. Pfizer has awarded nearly $200M in global medical grants for breast cancer to date.
As part of our program and in collaboration with Conquer Cancer®, the ASCO Foundation, $900,000 has been awarded to recipients across the United States to support studies focused on identifying disparities in delivery of care and treatment outcomes for patients of color with metastatic breast cancer (mBC).​​​​​​​

These grants, administered through Conquer Cancer’s EveryGrant® solution, are part of the Pfizer Global Medical Grants program Equitable Care of Metastatic Breast Cancer (mBC) Patients: A Phased Approach to Understanding and Addressing Healthcare Disparities for People of Color.

​​​​​​​Happening Now
Grant recipients are currently conducting a deep, data-based analysis of inequities within their own systems across a myriad of variables, including but not limited to socioeconomic determinants of access to care and point-of-care entry, age, financial barriers to care, and inequities in rural vs urban healthcare delivery.

​​​​​​​Grant recipients will meet to review their findings and apply for additional funding to address the disparities identified in the first phase of their work. Learn more about the grant recipients and the work they are undertaking.
