Our Vision: The Elimination of Cancer
Our Vision: The Elimination of Cancer

dds are that every person in the world knows, loves or is someone confronting cancer. In 2020 alone, cancer claimed the lives of roughly 10 million people globally and was responsible for more than 19 million diagnoses. Without bold and immediate action from the global health community, these numbers will continue to rise.

At Johnson & Johnson our innovative solutions have paved the way in oncology for more than 30 years, and we are determined to meet this public health crisis and transform cancer from a deadly disease to one that is preventable and curable.

Our reach, resources, and network of connections across the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies, academia, governments and other healthcare organizations are helping address unmet challenges in some of the deadliest cancers, developing novel and differentiated solutions within pharmaceuticals, medical devices and consumer health.

While it’s in our nature to challenge the status quo and strive for the seemingly unattainable, it’s our passion to help patients that drives us. Maintaining health and creating a sense of hope for all people impacted by cancer is what propels us to fight this disease at every stage—even before it starts. We will not stop until we have eliminated cancer.

For Us, It’s Personal

Employees across Johnson & Johnson are working tirelessly to change the course of a cancer diagnosis and create a future where cures are a reality and cancer is eradicated.

The pandemic shows the importance of being able to prevent, intercept or cure diseases, to eliminate them rather than manage their consequences. At Johnson & Johnson, we are applying these principles to other diseases, including lung cancer. I look forward to a day when people know cancer from history books only.
