Johnson & Johnson sees the threat of infectious disease as one of the most pressing, yet addressable, public health challenges. Over two million are infected with HIV each year – mothers, fathers, children, men and women, gay and straight, on every continent – and over one million die each year. For more than 30 years, Johnson & Johnson has been committed to making HIV history, working in partnership with other organizations to find solutions, by supporting education, providing access to treatment and championing prevention.
Like Johnson & Johnson, Global Citizen also believes one person has the power to make an impact. Join us. Get involved. Take action. Improve the world, one life at a time.
Upload a Video
Help fight stigma and misperceptions about HIV by creating and sharing a video at www.MakeHIVHistory.com. Record and share a custom 15 second video to tell your story, share the facts about HIV, or show your support. Johnson & Johnson will compile the most compelling submissions into a short video that will be revealed on World AIDS Day on December 1, 2017.
Donate a Photo
Take a photo. Make an impact. For every photo you share through the Donate a Photo app, Johnson & Johnson will give $1 to a cause you care about. Starting this month, users can now select two important new causes related to HIV/AIDS:
- Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation: The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF) is leading the global fight to end AIDS in children by the year 2020. To date, EGPAF has reached over 26 million women with HIV care and treatment services. Since their inception in 1988, new pediatric HIV infections in the U.S. have decreased by 95 percent. Worldwide, that number has seen a 7 percent decrease since the year 2000. EGPAF gives pregnant women around the world access to HIV testing, counseling, medication, and treatment. By providing HIV services to one soon-to-be mom, we get closer and closer to an AIDS-free generation. The fight isn't over until every single child is HIV-free.
- Black AIDS Institute: The Black AIDS Institute is the nation’s only think tank focused on ending HIV in Black communities by engaging and mobilizing Black institutions and individuals. The Black Treatment Advocates Network (BTAN) trains service providers, community members and leaders, educators, and people living with HIV/AIDS, who in turn mobilize local communities to respond to HIV/AIDS in Black populations. Black Americans face the highest HIV impact compared to any other race, accounting for 45 percent of people living with HIV while making up only 12 percent of the population.
You can donate a photo to one cause, once a day. For every photo donated, Johnson & Johnson will donate $1 to that cause. You can donate photos until December 31, 2017, or until each cause reaches their goal of $40,000, whichever comes first.
