Women are often referred to as the “chief medical officers” of families and communities around the world because they play a key role in family health. Empowering them through education and outreach can have a real impact on improving the health of an entire family.
Given this critical role that women play, Johnson & Johnson gears much of its global health support to initiatives that directly benefit women and girls. We have put a special focus on several areas where we can make a significant impact, like helping to eliminate mother-to-child transmission of HIV.
Despite many advances in the field, HIV/AIDS remains a significant public health concern, and we recognize that we can’t “make HIV history” on our own. That’s why the recent 21st International AIDS Conference provided an excellent opportunity to touch base with global partners who work with us to benefit girls and women of all ages in the fight against HIV.
