One of the core values of Our Credo is caring for the communities where we live and work, and the world community as well. It’s a commitment we take very seriously, and one of the ways Johnson & Johnson fulfils our responsibility is by partnering with hundreds of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to advance the health of communities locally and around the world. From direct product donations to employee volunteer opportunities to strategic collaborations on philanthropic programs large and small, our work together is making life-changing, long-term differences in the health of people and families around the world. In fact, through contributions of about $1B in products and cash we supported 500+ community programs in more than 60 countries in 2013.
The Worldwide Corporate Contributions is focused on three areas: saving and improving the lives of women and children, preventing disease among the most vulnerable, and strengthening the health care workforce. Our NGO partners, many with which we have worked for years, are doing amazing things. Learn more here.
At the end of 2013, two Johnson & Johnson leaders from our Medical Devices & Diagnostics (MD&D) group took on new adventures assisting communities far from home. Nuno Barboza, Vice President IT & Chief Information Officer, MD&D EMEA, and Suzanne Fiorino, Senior Director Strategy, Analytics and Sustainability, were given the chance to participate in on-site visits with two organizations we partner with, AmeriCares and Heart to Heart International.
