Pfizer, Club PK Team up for “PD Alliance in Motion"




Leading pharmaceutical company Pfizer is partnering with a renowned team of motorcycle riders for a special mission—one that can save the lives of thousands of Filipino children.

The initiative, dubbed “PD Alliance in Motion”, will bring together doctors, vaccine experts and riders from the elite Club PK, as they embark on a road trip spanning far-flung areas in the country to vaccinate children against pneumococcal disease (PD), the leading vaccine-preventable cause of death worldwide.



Pneumococcal disease describes a complex group of illnesses caused by the Streptococcus pneumoniae or streptococcus bacterium, and includes deadly invasive diseases (invasive pneumococcal disease or IPD) such as pneumonia with bacteremia, sepsis and meningitis, and non-invasive illnesses such as pneumonia, acute otitis media, and sinusitis.

The disease is a major health threat in the Philippines, with 90% of PD victims below five years old. Pneumonia is the leading cause of death among Filipino children under five, and the country ranks 10th in the world with the most number of childhood pneumonia cases. 


The members of the Club PK are already gearing up for the trip, which is set to take them from North to South of the Philippines. “The Club PK members have gone on many road trips and adventures in the past, and this upcoming trip will certainly be our most important one yet,” said Jotle Viray, Club PK President.
“As motorcycle enthusiasts, we gladly go to the most remote destinations simply out of our love for riding. This time, we are travelling with a renewed purpose, and we are one with Pfizer in protecting as many kids as possible from pneumonia and other deadly pneumococcal diseases.”
