Johnson & Johnson Announces a $50 Million Commitment to Support Frontline Health Workers Battling Covid-19
Johnson & Johnson has long been committed to supporting and championing frontline health workers who courageously deliver care to the most vulnerable patients around the world—it’s a legacy that dates as far back as the 1900s, when the company helped limit the spread of the 1918 Spanish flu by introducing the epidemic mask.
Most recently, the company announced a commitment to donate $250 million over 10 years toward inspiring, recruiting, training, retaining and mobilizing frontline health workers through its Johnson & Johnson Center for Health Worker Innovation.
On March 27th, the Johnson & Johnson family of companies and the Johnson & Johnson Foundation committed $50 million to support frontline health workers in the global fight against Covid-19.
“Serving doctors, nurses and health workers is who we are and what we do—and has been since 1886. Those at the front lines are our colleagues, family members, customers and partners—so we join the millions around the world who put them front and center right now, to support them as they provide care amidst Covid-19,” says Michael Sneed, Executive Vice President, Global Corporate Affairs & Chief Communication Officer. “We are proud to focus our pandemic response donations on the needs of frontline health workers and make a $50 million commitment in addition to the $250 million commitment made earlier this year.”
Johnson & Johnson is proud to help serve those who endeavor tirelessly to help keep us safe in hospitals, clinics and homes around the world, especially during this novel coronavirus pandemic.
