(Press Release)

Sun Life of Canada (Philippines), Inc. (Sun Life) and Pfizer Philippines (Pfizer) are teaming up in a bid to increase financial and health literacy among Filipinos.

The initial phase of the strategic partnership will focus on mounting webinars, market research, and forums. For its first offering, Sun Life and Pfizer mounted a webinar entitled “The Value of Vaccination” with LDR Medics Medical Director Dr. Lemuel Reyes as guest speaker.

“Sun Life and Pfizer are very much aligned in our goal of empowering Filipinos eager to secure their future. With both companies bringing their expertise to the table, the possibilities are exciting,” Sun Life President Alex Narciso said. “We look forward to exploring all these with our counterparts in Pfizer and thank them for their confidence and support.”

“At Pfizer, we apply science and our global resources to bring therapies that extend and significantly improve lives. Our collaboration with Sun Life reaffirms our longstanding heritage and industry-leading expertise in offering solutions that go beyond just medicines. With patients at the heart of what we do, we aim to help Filipinos be aware of the available prevention and treatment options so they can make informed decisions for themselves and their loved ones” said Edilberto Reyes, Pfizer Philippines Interim Country Manager.

Moving forward, the two companies will look into creating programs, tools, products, and services that aim to address the financial, medical, and insurance needs of Filipinos in a way that is most relevant to them.

“One thing we know for sure is that working together allows us to do more and go farther,” Narciso said. “Sun Life will always be ready to engage organizations that share our vision of a brighter Philippines.”
