Freedom from Hunger and the Microcredit Summit Campaign

Johnson & Johnson partners with the Freedom From Hunger and Microcredit Summit to help women in India address the root causes of their poverty, achieve food security, and access health care services for their families. The vast network of women’s groups organized for financial services can be used to reach hard-to-reach poor women and their families with life-saving health knowledge for behaviour change. Johnson & Johnson was the catalyst for this three-way partnership in India in 2010. Since then, the program has scaled up to reach more than one million women and girls annually with health education modules focused on common illnesses (e.g. diarrhoea, pneumonia), nutrition, reproductive, maternal, new-born, child, and adolescent health, and non-communicable diseases (e.g. diabetes, osteoporosis).
