Johnson & Johnson strives to make a significant impact on people’s lives. After the new Sustainable Development Goals were adopted, JNJ has focused its efforts on galvanizing partners, mobilizing employees and engaging communities with the goal of impacting millions of more lives within the next 15 years.

Johnson & Johnson has showed steadfast commitment to advancing human health at the 71st Session of the United Nations General Assembly and hosted a side event titled: “A Roadmap to Advance Human Health: Catalyzing Multi-sector Partnerships in an interconnected SDG Agenda”, aimed at showcasing Johnson & Johnson’s commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals and addressing how the commitments would be measured. This commitment, titled “2030 Promise”, outlines JNJ’s vision for 2030 and the five areas JNJ will focus their efforts on. These are:

  • Environmental Health
  • Global Disease Challenges
  • Essential Surgery
  • Women’s and Children’s Health
  • Health Workforce

Johnson & Johnson’s aspiration is to help create a world where every woman and child survives and has an opportunity for a healthy future, and to do this, JNJ’s goal is to ensure that 60 million women and children will have received support and tools to enable a healthy future by year 2020.
