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 80.6 million women and children. We will continue to focus on these vital issues through 2015 and beyond.
Every year, 287,000 mothers die from pregnancy and child birth complications and over 3 million infants die in their first month. We are committed to helping every mother and newborn survive and thrive. Read More
We support innovative mobile health programs that deliver vital stage-based health information to new and expectant mothers and families, so they are empowered with care critical to safely deliver and nurture a child’s growth. Read More
