Djantoli’s mission is to reduce infant mortality by facilitating access to preventive healthcare for families. Djantoli runs a network of health mediation officers who are responsible for carrying out regular health monitoring on young children, educating on prevention and referring families to appropriate healthcare facilities. It offers health insurance systems to facilitate access to care. Djantoli has developed an “electronic health record” tool to use on mobile phones. The association is now operating in Mali and Burkina Faso.
