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.
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.
Working with partners in 84 countries, we are on track to fulfill this commitment. In 2013 Johnson & Johnson programs reached more than 88 million women and children. We have reached 120 million women and children in 2014, and project that we will surpass that total in 2015.
Building on a long legacy of our commitment to maternal and child health, Johnson & Johnson will continue its work to save and improve the lives of millions of women and children as we enter the next set of global goals.
