Resources to Prioritise Healthcare

Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies introduces My Health Can’t Wait, a public information effort and resource hub, aimed to inspire people to prioritise their health and reach out to their healthcare ​professionals about deferred care. ​

Our research reveals that nearly a quarter (24.6%) of Australians surveyed say their health has worsened since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic1 and new research in NSW found that nearly half (48%) of people surveyed had delayed a medical appointment, test or procedure because of COVID -19.2 My Health Can’t Wait provides patients and providers with the tools to stay connected and prioritise needed care.
