The One Young World partnership is managed through the Johnson & Johnson Global Community Impact Group whose goal is to create a healthier world, one community at a time, through the development of strategic partnerships. Their vision is to support the people on the frontlines who are at the heart of delivering care and they believe that changing the trajectory of health for humanity requires putting people first so that communities and health systems have the ability to address the health needs of the world’s most vulnerable people.
