Ethicon Endo-Surgery Program
At Ethicon*, we truly care about improving patient's lives around the world. That spirit and the commitment of our people are the foundation of our company. By volunteering, donating products and supporting global and non-profit organizations, we live our belief that there are as many ways to give back as there are people in need.
Advocacy for patients
It's important to us that patients understand and have access to the highest quality healthcare. So we help raise awareness and provide education on healthcare issues and different treatment options. That way, patients can make informed decisions about solutions that lead to healthier living.
Taking care of our communities
We invest in programs that improve health, education and quality of life in the communities where we live and work. We consider charitable requests from organizations that meet the needs of under-served populations and focus on improving healthcare.
We also donate medical devices to help thousands of people by responding to disasters, medical relief efforts and basic health needs in under-served communities. With this support, we help build stronger, healthier communities around the globe.
Protecting the environment
We understand a healthy community and a healthy planet go hand and hand. That’s why we have the highest standards for environmental responsibility. Our goal is to comply with regulations while we also reduce our environmental impact. We have a responsibility to take care of our planet and preserve it for future generations.
As a standard practice, J&J follows the Office of Foreign Asset Control (OFAC) of the US Department of the Treasury, in regards to the sanctions, and other international mandates, developed in close cooperation with allied governments. As such, there are some countries under sanction to which J&J may not allow our products to be sent.
These countries may include: Cuba, Iran, Iraq, North Korea, Russia, Sudan, Syria, and Ukraine. Please contact MAP International if you are travelling to any of these locations. MAP is responsible for insuring compliance with the sanctions, and the J&J interpretation of those sanctions.
If you are on social media, we’d love for you to share your mission trip via your social media channels!
