Organization Description:
Johnson & Johnson Global Public Health is the first fully dedicated organization within a healthcare company that combines R&D, novel access programs & business model innovation, in-country operations, advocacy and the power of multisectoral partnerships to ensure that innovative treatments and technologies are available, affordable and accessible for the world's most underserved populations. Harnessing the extensive resources and expertise from across Johnson & Johnson, the Global Public Health team is accelerating the pace of innovation needed from discovery to delivery to make TB and HIV history, eliminate intestinal worms, address mental health and drive progress against other public health challenges.

Johnson & Johnson has a longstanding commitment to combatting TB. When bedaquiline was introduced in December 2012, it was the first drug with a novel mechanism of action against TB in over 40 years. Since then, Johnson & Johnson has provided more than 58,500 courses of treatment to patients in need in over 100 countries, including through the Bedaquiline Donation Program. Beyond ensuring access to bedaquiline, the company is supporting high-burden countries to:

• train health workers on the clinical management of TB;
• ensure appropriate use of bedaquiline to prevent further resistance from developing;
• improve diagnostic capacity; and
• raise awareness and reduce stigma around TB at the community level.
Johnson & Johnson is one of only a few pharmaceutical companies further investing significantly in research and development for the next-generation treatments that will be needed to reach the Sustainable Development Goal target and WHO End TB Strategy goal of ending TB by 2030.
