Together with partners around the world, Johnson & Johnson has been working to fight HIV for 25 years. Despite significant progress, UNAIDS estimates that there are still 36.7 million people living with HIV globally and 1.8 million people continue to contract the disease each year. Johnson & Johnson continues to work towards our goals of ensuring that every child is born HIV-free, that adolescent girls and young women have the tools they need to stay HIV-free, and that people living with HIV have access to the medicines they need.

  • Building well-being and leadership skills in nursing isn’t a new concept, but surprisingly, it hasn’t traditionally been a formal component of nursing education. As a result, many nurses enter the profession unprepared for what’s ahead. Beginning this winter, a new educational curriculum from the American Association of Colleges of Nursing will pilot a competency-based approach to developing the next generation of nurses at 10 nursing colleges nationwide, focused on empowering students with the skills needed to prioritize self-care, healthy behaviors and well-being in the healthcare work environment.
