IBM and Johnson & Johnson Team up in Santiago to Strengthen Community Resilience
The term “natural disaster” is a misnomer. Natural ecosystems often require disturbances such as fires and floods to remain healthy. They have an inherent resilience to the occasional battering. Crises created by destructive natural events might be more aptly referred to as “social disasters,” because of the toll of life and economic damage left in their wake.

One billion. That's how many lives Johnson & Johnson is committed to impacting through its Health for Humanity 2020 Goals, which include a pledge to deliver innovative healthcare access to some of the world's most underserved communities and cutting-edge training programs for frontline healthcare workers.
It's one of the company's largest commitments to date, and it aims to help support the crucial work being done by frontline health workers to help more children grow up healthy.
If there's one universal truth about kids, it may be this: They want to grow up as quickly as possible. And for over 100 years, Johnson & Johnson has been working to help them grow up as healthy as possible, too.
