As a global citizen, Johnson & Johnson engages with partners to address the needs of the world community, from enhancing health care access and education for the underserved to providing leadership and development training for health care professionals around the world. Combined with the contributions we make to support more than seven hundred programs worldwide, we seek to make a difference in the places we live and in the lives of people everyday.
In 1993, we created the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies Volunteer Support Program (VSP) to encourage employee initiatives that embody the spirit of Our Credo. The VSP activities are broad, and include:
• sponsoring volunteer opportunities;
• creating partnerships and relationships with local nonprofit organizations;
• coordinating volunteer days for Johnson & Johnson companies, groups and individuals; and
• recognizing excellence in volunteerism.
While currently available in the U.S., this program is being expanded to include retirees and employees around the world. We estimate that approximately 80 percent of our U.S. employees (more than 35,000 people) are active volunteers in their communities.
For more than 100 years, we have responded to major natural and man-made disasters around the world. In the immediate aftermath of any major disaster, Johnson & Johnson works through its key international relief partners and local affiliates to assess and rapidly respond – in many cases within hours – to critical health needs with an array of consumer, pharmaceutical, and medical products.
Through partners such as MAP (Medical Assistance Programs) International, Johnson & Johnson routinely deploys disaster relief modules in key global “hot spots” prone to earthquakes, hurricanes and other catastrophes. These modules include wound care, infection prevention, analgesic and orthopedic products. Additionally, employees at local Johnson & Johnson companies volunteer to help in communities most affected.
Johnson & Johnson also contributes funds to nonprofit organizations to provide food, water and health care to those affected by social and civil unrest. AmeriCares, Direct Relief International, International Aid, MAP International, and Salvation Mission Warehouse have been partnering with the Company for many years.
