"PD Alliance in Motion" - Pfizer teams up with Club PK

"Every minute of every day, a child's life is lost to pneumococcal disease. It is the leading vaccine-preventable cause of death worldwide, especially among children below 5 years of age, with 800,000 to 1 million children dying from the disease each year."

PFIZER, the leading pharmaceutical company has partnered with CLUB PK, the leading motorcycle riders for a special mission - to fight the deadly pneumococcal disease or PD that kills thousands of lives of Filipino children.

PD is one of the major threats of life in the Philippines, especially for children below 5 years old. The Philippines is the 10th among the countries with the most number of childhood pneumonia cases - mostly turns to fatal and even death to those young kids.
Dubbed as "PD Alliance in Motion", the allied doctors, vaccine experts and the "big guys with the big bikes" are set on a road trip to go to the far-flung areas in the Philippines to vaccinate children against PD.

Good thing team Pfizer have Club PK, it would be more accessible to reach those remote places in a faster time to fully save children from the pneumonia.
