Our Perspective on the London Declaration on Neglected Tropical Diseases


On Monday, January 30, Johnson & Johnson joined 12 other pharmaceutical companies, the World Health Organization, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the U.S. and U.K. governments, The World Bank, and endemic countries to announce a new, unprecedented collaborative effort to control or eliminate 10 Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) by the year 2020.

Here’s a video post from our Pharmaceuticals Worldwide Chairman Paul Stoffels, who gives our perspective about the Johnson & Johnson commitment to this effort, and talks about why this collaboration could serve as a new model for collaboration to address global health issues.  The post was taped on the day of the announcement last week.
