Johnson & Johnson aspires to profoundly change the trajectory of health for humanity. This aspiration includes positively impacting the health of our employees, our communities, and the planet — as
we have for the last 130 years. And today, this commitment remains inextricably bound to all that we do.
The work of the Johnson & Johnson Center for Health Worker Innovation (CHWI), launched in 2019, is grounded in the belief that by solving the challenges facing health workers, we can improve health care for everyone. But we know we cannot get there without ensuring health systems are equitable to start. ‘Our Race to Health Equity,’ an ambitious effort to help eliminate racial and social injustice as a public health threat, builds on our wide-ranging initiatives to improve health care for patients and whole communities worldwide. Both of these flagship efforts rely on investments in bold ideas and innovative solutions that can deliver lasting impact for communities around the world to make ‘health for all’ a reality.
The COVID-19 pandemic has made our work ever more urgent as the gaps in our health systems have been exposed and exacerbated. We continue to work to ensure the health workforce emerges from this crisis better supported and equipped than ever.
As a leading global innovator in healthcare, we put people first to positively impact human health through innovation. We empower entrepreneurs to realize their dreams of creating healthcare solutions that improve peoples’ lives around the world. And we catalyze the ingenuity of everyday innovators and our employee “intrapreneurs” to support the healthiest generation yet through the discovery of new ideas.
By lifting up partners, connecting communities, and leveraging the expertise and scale of our company for good, we help activate the resources—and resolve—needed to address the world’s most pressing health challenges.
Johnson & Johnson is proud to partner with 2021 Aspen Ideas: Health to celebrate the power of big ideas and front line community innovators as champions for change.
