​Enhancing a 15-year Collaboration

Johnson & Johnson Citizenship Trust (JNJCCT) recently held a ceremony to commemorate its partnership with the Aga Khan University School of Nursing & Midwifery (SONAM). The event was held in honor of a 15-year partnership between JNJCCT and SONAM, a partnership that has substantively enhanced nursing education in East Africa.

JJNCCT was led by the Group Chairman, Europe, Middle East and Africa Jane Griffiths while SONAM was led by the Dean, Professor Sharon Brownie. Also present at the event were alumni who are beneficiaries of the partnership.

 “This partnership also commemorates the commitment His Highness the Aga Khan has made towards the advancement of quality health care in East Africa – a commitment made over 100 years ago that continues today. To date, the investment has supported 2,138 nurses in East Africa. All alumni who have benefited from this partnership are women. All are doing exceptionally well”.
