Johnson & Johnson has announced the launch of a global public health strategy at the opening of its companies' on-the-ground global public health operations in Cape Town, South Africa.
The initial implementation of the strategy starts with the new site in Cape Town, and will focus on three core areas: HIV, Tuberculosis, and Maternal, Newborn and Child Health. The company plans to expand its focus areas to address other unmet global health needs and its geographic reach.
J&J's global public health Africa operations team will facilitate locally-executable programs that drive health impact in collaboration with local health delivery partners.
The new strategy will bring additional investments to the more than 1,500 employees and three existing manufacturing sites in Africa.
