Djantoli offers a health service for young children, which combines prevention, detection and early treatment of childhood diseases, subject to a small financial contribution from these populations on low incomes.
This simple and innovative service is based on the regular monitoring of key health data, collected by agents from families and transmitted to the local doctor using a mobile application. The service can be used to detect cases of malnutrition. Djantoli has been working in Mali since 2008 and in Burkina Faso since 2013.
Project supported: For the second year running, the Foundation is supporting Djantoli to increase and carry out its work in three particularly vulnerable neighbourhoods in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.
The aim of the programme is to monitor 500 new children members, or 1,000 children in total since the start of the project.
1,500 families will be trained in good nutritional practices as part of the health education sessions. While also working to improve the provision of health care services by Djantoli partners, more than 13,000 children will benefit from this programme in 2017.
