Responding to people in crisis
At Johnson & Johnson we strive to be a trusted community partner, including in times of crisis. In the immediate aftermath of any major disaster, we work with 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. Global Community Impact works with partners on the front lines of care to help communities by coordinating product donations and through programs that help communities recover, rebuild and become resilient.
Building on a valued, 15-year collaboration, Johnson & Johnson and International Health Partners proudly debut a shared global donation platform to help communities in crisis recover, rebuild and regain resilience after disasters.
Earthquakes, typhoons, floods. Natural disasters can strike at any moment, devastating communities and healthcare systems—which is why Johnson & Johnson has disaster relief modules at the ready.
The contribution will be earmarked for immediate aid on the ground, as well as long-term emotional support through special programs for the youngest victims of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria.
The company has donated funds and products, and it’s also taking steps to ensure that crucial healthcare products continue to be manufactured on the island for people who rely on them.
What started as medical aid donated to the injured survivors of a devastating 1889 flood has evolved into a legacy of philanthropy that spans the globe. We look at key moments throughout history in which the company has mobilized to help people, including those recently affected by the devastating earthquake in Morocco.
When the 8.3 magnitude quake struck, the company mobilized to send supplies and other aid to the city—a practice that continues to this day.
