Over 240.000 people struggled to get access to HIV care in Myanmar alone, where health systems required them to go through multiple touchpoints to access life-saving treatments.
For those living in remote and rural areas, the patient journey to medical care was difficult and lengthy: days-long and expensive trips to access the complete treatment. At the same time, people living with HIV were vulnerable to social stigmas when forced to openly speak about the disease.
Committed to their mission to offer world-wide solutions for HIV treatments, Johnson & Johnson prioritized the issue where it was most challenging – all eyes turned to Myanmar.
A task of this scale required collaborators from all across the world to set the mission in motion: authorities, NGOs and industry leaders started to pitch in.
Board of Innovation joined forces with Johnson & Johnson and Pepal, a renowned international NGO, to play the key role of understanding local patients’ journeys and designing human-centered solutions.
