Innovation Toolset
To accelerate solutions with and for health workers, the Center for Health Worker Innovation deploys a suite of tools including, but not limited to, philanthropic funding from the Johnson & Johnson Foundation.

People

The Johnson & Johnson employee engagement strategy ‘Talent for Good’ empowers employees to grow personally and professionally by applying their time, skills and resources to build healthier communities around the word. Talent for Good offers Johnson & Johnson employees with a variety of opportunities that enable employees to give back to society and local communities while growing their skills and capabilities. Opportunities that support our health worker partners on the front lines range from virtual engagement support, mentoring and coaching, to long-term skill-based in-country assignments.

Partnerships

From seed grants, to public-private partnerships at scale, to impact investing, we draw from a diverse set of innovative financing vehicles to introduce, test, refine, and learn from promising ideas, programs and technologies.

Advocacy

In partnership with our Government Affairs & Policy colleagues, we identify and urge action on sensible policies to attract, retain, and support health workers.

Communications

We raise our voice on behalf of frontline health workers everywhere, tapping the full depth and breadth of the Johnson & Johnson global presence to reach diverse audiences. Follow us on Twitter and Instagram, and join our newsletter to get the latest from the Center.

Convening

We welcome anyone and everyone with a commitment to frontline health workers to add their voices and resources to this effort. We bring together a diverse range of global organizations to catalyse and accelerate innovation.

Big For Good

To help us address the health workforce crisis, the Center collaborates across the global Johnson & Johnson enterprise, leveraging the diverse talent pool, innovation, business expertise, relationships, professional networks, and more.

Technology

From communication and data collection, to next-gen tech like artificial intelligence, big data analytics and Internet of Things, we believe that technology can support health worker accuracy, productivity and collaboration within a connected team and health system.

As a science-based company we believe in the power of data-driven decision-making and are committed to sharing best practices and strengthening the evidence base on health workforce innovations.
Johnson & Johnson Impact Ventures
In 2019, we launched Johnson & Johnson Impact Ventures, a new impact investment initiative within the Johnson & Johnson Foundation that seeks to invest in market based solutions and business models to support the access and delivery of quality and affordable care. The investment strategy is guided by the Foundation’s Board of Directors, following expert counsel from an Impact Advisory Committee. Johnson & Johnson Impact Ventures has committed $5 million to five impact investments in Kenya, the UK, Brazil and Southeast Asia that have been 80% executed.
