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, working with partners in 65 countries, J&J programs reached approximately 81.7 million women and children.  We will continue to focus on these vital issues through 2015 and beyond.

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