Our Mission to End HIV

Working to make HIV history alt

HIV is one of the world’s greatest health challenges. 38 million people around the world live with HIV, and 1.7 million are newly infected each year. Johnson & Johnson has been working for 25 years to fight the disease.

Over this time, we’ve developed eight HIV medicines – and we are now partnering on a potential long-acting injectable regimen. These drugs allow people to live with HIV as a chronic condition rather than the death sentence it once was. We’re also currently working on a vaccine to prevent HIV, with two large-scale efficacy clinical trials being pursued across 13 countries on four continents, including Africa, Europe, and North and South America.

None of this would be possible without the numerous partners we’ve worked with for the past quarter century: doctors, nurses, patients, advocacy groups, health authorities, NGOs and industry leaders. No one can do it alone. That’s why we also sponsor more than 100 HIV programs in 50 countries. They help educate, support and care for the men, women and children living with HIV who otherwise would be alone.

We won’t stop until we make HIV history.

A look at some of the numbers behind one of the world's biggest healthcare challenges.

Developing a preventive vaccine for HIV is our top priority and we need armies of people to help make it happen. People in the sciences, people in clinical centers to execute these trials and volunteers—especially volunteers. I’m so impressed with the people who are helping move human health forward.

Although HIV is now considered a chronic and manageable condition, the global challenge remains immense. With 37 million people around the world living with HIV —and nearly two million people newly-infected each year—we cannot treat ourselves out of the HIV epidemic. Our ultimate goal must be to find a preventive vaccine for HIV.
