Johnson & Johnson Foundation

The Johnson & Johnson Foundation works towards a world where basic, quality health services are available to everyone, everywhere by supporting and championing the people on the front lines who are at the heart of delivering care.

Funded solely by the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies, the Foundation currently operates worldwide as Johnson & Johnson Foundation US (founded 1953) and Johnson & Johnson Foundation Scotland (founded 2007). These independent entities support both global and in-country partnerships and initiatives, opportunities for employee engagement, and disaster response activities managed by the Global Community Impact team at Johnson & Johnson.

The Johnson & Johnson Foundation supports the best ideas, wherever they come from, to make basic, quality health services available to everyone and build a healthier and more equitable future for all.

This includes the Johnson & Johnson Centre for Health Worker Innovation founded in 2019 to catalyse efforts to respond to the human resource crisis in global health and build a thriving health workforce. Leveraging a people-first model, the Center focuses on equipping nurses, midwives and community health workers across the globe with the skills, resources and support they need to improve quality of care and strengthen primary and community-based health systems.

One of the Foundation’s initiatives under the Center is Johnson & Johnson Impact Ventures, an innovative finance vehicle designed to address the existing gap in health-focused impact investing by funding social enterprises that support front line health workers.
