  SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend  
   

MUMBAI, June 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

Annual  Health for Humanity Report  Discloses Progress on Global Commitments and Highlights Key Achievements Toward Eradicating and Preventing Disease, Reimagining Care Delivery and Promoting Lifelong Health  

Johnson & Johnson today released its 2017  Health for Humanity Report, demonstrating its approach and the considerable progress it has made toward an ambitious social, environmental and governance commitment to advance the Company's mission to drive better health for all. The report also highlights Johnson & Johnson's pioneering public health initiatives in India, with a special focus on supporting the country's efforts to eradicate deadly diseases such as tuberculosis (TB), progress in maternity and infant care and the company's initiatives towards enhancing workplace diversity & inclusion.

"Johnson & Johnson works every day to ensure the next generation is healthier than the last," said  Alex Gorsky, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Johnson & Johnson. "Our work pushes for healthier societies and serves as a reminder that our job is not yet done. We must continue to raise the bar for ourselves and for the healthcare industry at large, so we can continue to earn our place in people's hearts and minds everywhere."

The following reflect 2017 highlights for India:

Maintaining our commitment to eradicating and preventing disease - collaborating for a TB-free India  

  • Johnson & Johnson is a committed partner to the Government of India for combating drug-resistant TB at every level. To date, the company has donated approximately 11,000 courses of bedaquiline, the first new TB treatment in nearly 50 years, as part of a Donation Program with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), its Compassionate Use Programs and a Conditional Access Program (CAP).
  • Beyond this, Johnson & Johnson has partnered at the central and state levels to ensure appropriate use of medications, training more than 4,000 health care workers on the clinical management of TB and multi-drug resistant- (MDR-) TB; provided around 35,000 X-ray tests and 20,000 molecular tests to improve access to diagnosis; and helped raised awareness about TB among nearly 11 million people at the community level.    
  • Further, Johnson & Johnson is working closely with scientists from the Council of Scientific & Industrial Research's Institute of Microbial Technology (CSIR-IMTECH), based in Chandigarh.   The research and discovery program is aimed at exploring the development of next-generation treatment regimens to tackle multidrug-resistant TB, as well as new molecular entities to treat all TB patients.

Reflecting on the progress of initiatives in India,  Sanjiv Navangul, Managing Director, Janssen, pharmaceutical division of Johnson & Johnson India  said,  "For over seventy years, India has been an important part of Johnson & Johnson's efforts to ensure health for humanity around the world.  We are driven by the belief that patients are waiting and there is no time to waste, and this report, which highlights the progress we have made over the last year, underlines our deep commitment to solving some of India's greatest health challenges."

Reimagining how care is delivered  

  • Introduced GenH, a global social venture competition bringing ideas from more than 54 countries, harnessing the power of innovators and entrepreneurs to design locally-tailored and globally-relevant solutions for some of the world's toughest health problems, and offering mentorship and financial prizes to the winners for establishing those ventures in countries such as India, Ghana, and Brazil.
  • Achieved broad expansion of mMitra, a groundbreaking mobile-messaging program in India that sends vital health information to expectant and new moms living in low-income urban communities. The program has been cited by the World Health Organization and others as a global example of a scaled digital health program.

Promoting lifelong health and wellbeing, and environmental health  

  • Johnson & Johnson India has been committed to the well-being of its workforce implementing programs for several decades now. Case in point: Johnson & Johnson's manufacturing facility in Mulund (Mumbai) has had a creche for over thirty years now.
  • Today, the company offers such best-in-class  benefits as on-site health centres, height-adjustable tables for the health-conscious; parental leaves for birth or adoption, and family support through programs such as the Nurturing Family Bonds.

Speaking at the announcement,  Vikas Srivastava, Managing Director, Consumer, Johnson & Johnson India  said, "We at Johnson & Johnson India are committed to supporting the health and well-being of our employees and their families. We have also introduced family-friendly policies which make it possible for employees to more easily balance family and work, and to fulfill their obligations. For new mothers, we were amongst the first organizations, six years ago, to offer 26 weeks of maternity leave. In August 2017, we introduced a new global standard for Parental Leave, where our employees across the globe - including India - are eligible to take a minimum of eight weeks paid parental leave for birth or adoption."

Looking across all Johnson & Johnson's business practices, the Company shares important disclosure about how it supports good health for patients, consumers, employees and local communities on a global scale. The report tracks how Johnson & Johnson is striving to eradicate and prevent disease, reimagine how care is delivered, and put a healthy mind, body and environment within reach of all people around the world.
