A Message from Penny Heaton and James Merson
At Janssen, we have a strong legacy of delivering medicines and vaccines to contribute to global efforts to fight infectious diseases, one of the greatest threats currently facing humankind. With infectious diseases disproportionately impacting the most vulnerable populations, we remain committed to building upon our strong foundation of scientific expertise, with solutions that are grounded in science, and rooted in humanity. We have an ambitious goal – to ensure a future where we can prevent the spread of infectious diseases and eliminate the burden they place on global health. We believe our transformational vaccines and therapies will play a vital role in improving outcomes for those who are most in need, across a wide range of infectious diseases.
