Empowering Change 
on the frontlines of health


Empowering people to address the health needs of the most vulnerable populations and help change the trajectory of health for humanity

Connecting, co-creating and sharing skills to empower people to deliver a positive and sustainable impact

At Johnson & Johnson we are building the healthiest communities by empowering our employees around the world to combine their resources and resolve to make a positive and dramatic impact on society and the environment.

Our change maker programs build knowledge and leadership expertise across the career spectrum at Johnson & Johnson. They also support those working on the front lines of care, through our skill sharing and scholarship opportunities. Through collaboration and co-creation, we are developing innovative and much needed solutions that tackle complex health challenges across the Europe, Middle East and Africa and on a global scale; and creating entrepreneurial and authentic leaders to champion positive change both now and for future generations.

Today we kicked off the third, and unfortunately, last day of the 2018 One Young World Summit in Den Haag. It has been a highly inspiring day full of urgent topics: climate, LGBT+ and human rights, and health.

Sharing employees’ skills and knowledge to strenghten NGO partner organizations

Now in its fifth year of operation, the Secondment Program provides a unique opportunity for J&J employees across EMEA to give back to society by sharing their much-needed knowledge and skills with our NGO partners in long-term secondments, helping to build the NGO’s aspiration, organizational structure and whilst developing their own leadership skills. 

By year-end 2018, 46 J&J employees will have completed a long-term secondment with six NGO partners across 23 countries in the EMEA region.

Stories Worth Sharing: HIV Peer Educators on Combatting Stigma, Creating Hope, and Inspiring Change

In Mlolongo, Kenya, it’s hard to miss the wine and spirit stores, miraa dens, brothels and strip clubs that line Madharau street, or “malicious” street. Mlolongo is a city located along the Nairobi-Mombasa Highway, about 20 kilometres from Nairobi. It is an area well-known for sex work and North Star Alliance,a Flagship Partner of the J&J Global Community Impact team in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, alone cares for more than 2,800 sex workers in the area.

As a Johnson & Johnson employee, I have had the opportunity to analyse healthcare systems and address their challenges every day. However, I rediscovered it in a bright new light when I joined the North Star team this past March through the Johnson & Johnson Secondment Programand began collaborating closely with the people at the front lines of care. Walking through Madharau street was not something I envisioned doing when I thought about “being on the front lines of care,” but my Secondment experience has taught me that going the extra mile to reach vulnerable and mobile populations who need care the most is indeed a major component of successful healthcare delivery.
