Welcome to the Center

The Johnson & Johnson Center for Health Worker Innovation was founded to help address the 18 million health worker shortfall in global health and to ensure that those already in the health workforce are adequately supported to deliver quality care, including during COVID-19.

With half the world lacking access to basic, essential health services, renewing primary healthcare, which has been underfunded for decades, and placing it at the center of efforts to improve health and well-being is critical to achieving global health priorities such as Universal Health Coverage. Frontline health workers —especially nurses, midwives, and community health workers—are often the first and only link between communities and health systems. 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.

Why Johnson & Johnson Created the Center for Health Worker Innovation

We believe everyone, everywhere should have access to basic quality health services.
We support and champion nurses, midwives and community health workers who are at the heart of delivering care.
