Our MDG Commitment

In 2010, Johnson & Johnson pledged to support Millennium Development Goals 4, 5 and 6 with a comprehensive, five-year Commitment to reach as many as 120 million women and children a year by 2015.
 
Working with our partners, we focus on five areas where our role as a global health care company can supplement strong, innovative partnerships and programs:  making childbirth safer, treating and preventing intestinal worms in children, using mobile phones to share vital health information to new and expecting mothers, eliminating mother-to-child HIV transmission and research and development to treat HIV, tuberculosis and neglected tropical diseases.
 
We are on track to fulfill this commitment.  In 2013 J&J programs reached approximately 88 million women and children.  We will continue to focus on these vital issues through 2015 and beyond. Johnson & Johnson has been working side-by-side with implementing partners in 82 countries to reach more than 200 million women and children since 2010.

Data collection on population reached is ongoing; data shown are as of February 2015.
