About My Health Can't Wait
Community-focused health
My Health Can’t Wait is a community wellness initiative that connects people of color in the U.S. with vital health information and resources.

We meet people where they are and empower individuals to advocate for their health.


People of color in the U.S. face disparities in access to health care, quality of care and mortality when compared to their white counterparts. Addressing these disparities is important to ensuring everyone has a fair chance to live a healthy life.

Johnson & Johnson is trying to close these gaps with the help of local community-based organizations by sponsoring free community wellness events where attendees can find education and partner-led screenings to improve their health.

My Health Can’t Wait events have reached over 100,000 people, delivered 16,000 partner-led health screenings and distributed 35,000 packets of educational materials in communities of color.

My Health Can’t Wait also supports initiatives that spotlight health issues affecting communities of color.
A commitment to health equity
A commitment to health equity
Johnson & Johnson is committed to closing health gaps for people of color and advancing racial health equity across the United States.

At the heart of Johnson & Johnson’s enduring commitment to racial health equity is our desire to create a world where the color of your skin does not determine your access to care, quality of care or health outcomes.

To enable better health outcomes for everyone, we focus on three approaches:
Community Engagement and Education
Community-based health solutions
We seek to make community-centered care the norm. We support and collaborate with community health centers, community health workers, national associations and grassroots organizations to empower patients, strengthen community-based services and support individuals to make informed decisions about their health through resources and education.
Culturally Competent Care
Culturally sensitive care
We support programs that increase the diversity of the healthcare workforce and the incoming talent pipeline so that patients of color are met with quality, empathetic care.
Inclusive Research and Representative Clinical Trials

We select diverse locations and patient participants in our research and clinical trials and incorporate equity into our end-to-end therapy and device design.
The more you know, the better you can manage your health. Together with healthcare professionals, community leaders and experts, we’ve collected resources and information to help you on your journey.
Our race to health equity
Our Race to Health Equity was launched with the bold ambition that together, we can create a world where the color of your skin is not a determinant of your access to care, quality of care or health outcomes. Johnson & Johnson aspires to help eradicate racial and social injustice as a public health threat by eliminating health inequities for people of color.
At Johnson & Johnson, we believe good health is the foundation of vibrant lives, thriving communities and forward progress. That’s why for more than 135 years, we have aimed to keep people well at every age and every stage of life. Today, as the world’s largest, most diversified healthcare products company, we are committed to using our reach and size for good.
