LONDON, April 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Today, UK-based Johnson & Johnson Professional Export, a division of Johnson &
Johnson Medical Ltd, is proud to celebrate the honor of winning the Queen's
Award for Enterprise. The award for 'International Trade' was given in
recognition of their successful domestic and international strategies which
have widened access to their extensive range of medical devices and diagnostic
products in emerging markets including Iran, Malta/Gibraltar and Sub-Saharan
Africa.

" Our vision is to significantly increase the number of healthcare
professionals and ultimately patients who benefit from our advanced medical
devices and diagnostic products. By achieving consistent growth we have been
able to increase investment in this region, offering the best possible
training for healthcare professionals while building valuable partnerships
with local organizations, businesses and customers in both the UK and Emerging
Markets, " said Johnson & Johnson Professional Export Managing Director, Ian
Walker.

Johnson & Johnson Professional Export prides itself on being a dynamic,
customer-driven organization that operates through 45 distributors in 43
countries. Receiving a prestigious Queen's Award not only acknowledges the
company's continued commitment to improving healthcare through Corporate
Social Responsibility initiatives in Africa, but its significant investment
in training and education.

For example, Johnson & Johnson offers unique local education programs for
surgeons in Sub-Saharan Africa, establishing two regional training centres in
Ghana and Kenya in partnership with Korle Bu Hospital in Accra and Nairobi
University Medical School. Through these facilities, Johnson & Johnson has
been able to train in excess of 1,200 healthcare professionals across a range
of surgical procedures, enabling expanded access to healthcare for patients in
parts of the region that have historically been more challenging to reach.

EMEA Company Group Chairman Sabine Dandiguian said, " Inspired by Our Credo,
Johnson & Johnson is working to ensure emerging markets such as Sub-Saharan 
Africa  gain access to the best possible healthcare. We are proud that
Johnson & Johnson Professional Export has been awarded such a prestigious
accolade to recognize their business and community impact in this region. "

As a winner of the Queen's Award for Enterprise, Johnson & Johnson
Professional Export will be invited to attend a special reception at
Buckingham Palace later this year.

Johnson & Johnson Professional Export, a division of Johnson & Johnson Medical
Ltd is based at Kirkton Campus, Livingston, Scotland.
