Strong, well-functioning health systems are imperative for advancing human health around world. At Johnson & Johnson, our primary responsibility is continuous innovation to deliver transformational products and services to those in need. However, for our medicines, vaccines and diagnostics solutions to reach patients, we rely on the health systems that distribute and deliver them. More needs to be done to build and strengthen the enabling environment, which can support timely, reliable, high-quality delivery of medical services at reasonable cost and where it is needed. This is the impetus behind our committed focus on strengthening health systems.
Around the world, we are leveraging our global expertise in health and on-the-ground presence in many regions to advocate for tailored solutions that help strengthen local health systems. We advocate for universal access to care; pilot sustainable financing solutions together with strategic partners so that people can cover their health needs; and educate and empower professionals on the front lines, such as nurses, caregivers and community health workers.
Working with many stakeholders, including community leaders, healthcare companies, non-governmental organizations, payers, providers and policy makers, we are proud of our role—and our impact—in filling gaps in care, promoting value-based care, and aiming to keep people well at every age and every stage of life.
