Johnson & Johnson’s Continued Commitment to Global Public Health

I have talked about my family’s love of Johnson & Johnson countless times on this blog because I love the brand’s products, the company’s history, and what they stand for. Now what I have learned about the impact they have made on Global Public Health makes me love this brand even more! As a mom of a child with chronic health issues, I am constantly thinking about how to keep my family healthy and happy. Knowing the impact Johnson & Johnson has had on public health, as well as knowing that they continue to stay committed to Global Public Health today is something that makes me a loyal consumer.

Since the very beginning, Johnson & Johnson has continued to make public health a major priority. They have developed products and educational materials that have helped prevent infections and the spread of diseases when this was not something people were thinking about, saving countless lives and pioneering the way for Global Public Health.

When we go to a hospital today, operating rooms are completely sterile while doctors and nurses are trained to continuously wash their hands and protect themselves and others from the spread of germs and diseases. However, there was a time when many surgeons operated in their street clothes and did not consider washing their hands. This is when Johnson & Johnson developed sterile surgical products to help doctors perform surgeries in a much safer manner.

The Household Hand Book was created by Johnson & Johnson in 1916. This Household Hand Book educated families about how to stop the spread of disease within their home using valuable and science-based information. It taught people how to recognize disease symptoms, how to use the company’s cleaning products to clean their homes in order to prevent the spreading of germs, and when it was necessary to call a doctor.

From educating people about how to prevent the spread of Polio and Measles, to creating protective masks during the Influenza Pandemic of 1918, Johnson & Johnson has supported public health in countless ways and that commitment continues today.

Johnson & Johnson is currently working to fight drug-resistant Tuberculosis and working with global partners to create an HIV Vaccine. These are life-threatening health issues that people around the globe need solutions for, and Johnson & Johnson continues to pioneer the way to solving these global health issues so that people everywhere can live a healthier life.

    I had no idea that Johnson and Johnson was such a leader in public health. I knew they made bandages and what not, but I didn’t know they were on the front of this kind of thing.
