Water is everywhere. It covers 70% of our planet and makes up nearly 60% of the human body. Despite its abundance, 663 million people around the world lack access to safe water.
Another 2.4 billion people lack access to a toilet or latrine, while more than 3.5 million people die each year because of inadequate water supply, sanitation, or hygiene.

Today on World Water Day, we are reflecting on all the ways Pfizer is working to reduce and preserve water across our company, contributing to the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal 6: Clean Water and Sanitation.
