As parents, both of us agree that no investment is more important than our children’s future. Every child-no matter where he or she is born-should survive and thrive. Whether during the early moments of life or through their important developmental years, children around the world can have healthier, happier futures.
That’s why this evening was a special night for all of us at Johnson & Johnson. Our Chairman and CEO Alex Gorsky, plus senior company leadership, joined hundreds of supporters at the Save the Children Illumination Gala, where we made a significant announcement to inspire the survival and healthy development of children under 5, with a focus on newborns. Johnson & Johnson is committing a minimum of $10 million over three years to help expand resources, with a particular focus on “Helping Babies Breathe.” This commitment is a natural expansion of the partnership that Johnson & Johnson and Save the Children have enjoyed for more than 20 years.
While the first day of a baby’s life is always a joyous one, it also can be a precarious one.
