For over 30 years, Johnson & Johnson (J&J) and UNICEF have worked together to improve the lives of children and their communities globally.
J&J has gifted more than $20 million in support of UNICEF’s global work for children, mothers and families. Together we have reached 40,000 health workers and nearly 1 million beneficiaries with lifesaving tools and resources since 2018.
Priorities for the partnership include providing health workers with training and psychosocial support and advancing digital innovations to strengthen health systems in 30 countries and territories.
A robust, trained and motivated healthcare workforce is critical to saving and improving the lives of children and their families while also improving health outcomes.
In Vietnam, UNICEF and J&J work together in some of the most remote provinces to ensure that community health workers and midwives in ethnic minority communities receive quality skills-based training to better serve mothers and their newborns. The program builds the capacity of healthcare workers to provide skilled birth assistance and early essential newborn care.
In Pakistan, J&J-supported UNICEF programs train female health workers in maternal, neonatal and newborn care, including hygiene, immunization and nutrition. The program takes a shared learning approach, equipping female health workers with portable projectors for sharing educational videos with women in their communities.
UNICEF identifies, tests and scales creative solutions to meet the needs of the most vulnerable children. J&J supports the development of innovative technologies that aim to improve maternal and newborn health outcomes, including:
J&J’s support helps UNICEF reach children and families when disaster strikes. The partners work together to provide immediate and long-term relief, helping communities build back better.
