About Our Giving
We have the incredibly good fortune at Johnson & Johnson to work with hundreds of community-based organizations on programs that touch the lives of millions of people each year. Every time I visit these programs, I am profoundly moved and touched by the people who benefit from the work we support, and I am increasingly in awe of our hundreds of partner organizations for the work they do each day.
From helping babies take their first breath of life to freeing women from the devastating isolation of obstetric fistula, our partners are the pillars of our philanthropic work. Johnson & Johnson is privileged to play a role. We recognize that those closest to the most pressing health care concerns are best able to address local needs. This report celebrates the work of our partners and the lives they touch.
Our partnerships are inspired by Our Credo. We work with partners on over 700 programs in more than 50 countries. Our employees in every region volunteer their time, business skills and passion for making a difference to local organizations, and they are an integral part of our company's philanthropic efforts. With a private-sector perspective, we bring an enthusiasm for strategic planning and a willingness to try and implement innovative approaches that often help organizations expand their horizons. We bring a rigor for metrics and evaluation, and our work to help programs demonstrate measurable outcomes provides organizations with data that can attract additional sources of funding.
Our diverse partners are aligned with our strategic mission of making life-changing, long-term differences in human health. Our global giving focuses on three broad areas: saving and improving the lives of women and children; building the skills of people who serve community health needs, primarily through education; and preventing disease and reducing stigma and disability in underserved communities.
