„As I come from an area of expertise that places people at the center of any action, I am looking forward to applying the same principles in my new position. As such, my main goal is to ensure that Pfizer Romania will continue and even intensify its support for increasing Romanians’ access to innovative treatments, with the potential to save lives. At the same time, I am ready to work closely with both authorities and patient associations, since I am convinced that only a solid partnership between all players within the health system can enable us all to offer citizens the medical care they need and deserve”, Mirela Iordan, Country Manager Pfizer Romania, says.
