The Sudanese Health Consultancy Group was formed in 2006 from the core group who established the Sudanese Public Health Network in the UK (SPHNUK). A voluntary group, we endeavour to assist colleagues and organisations in the Sudan to share knowledge, skills and ideas between UK and Sudan. Our work programme in Sudan is formalized by a Memorandum of Understanding with the Faculty of Public Health UK and the Federal Ministry of Health Sudan.
We currently have ten members working in public health in the UK and other parts of the world. Collectively, we have experience of working in the NHS and universities in England, Scotland, Ireland and the US.
Sudan and the health of all fellow Sudanese are always in our heart. Our mission is to encourage and foster peer support, development and sharing of PH knowledge and skills within and between professionals in Sudan, the UK and internationally. The group's vision is to contribute to building in Sudan a nation of healthy individuals, families and communities, served by health systems that are equitable, accessible, affordable, efficient and consumer friendly in which the society participates actively.
Our main aim is to improve public health practice in Sudan, through the development of advanced PH skills and learning from international experience. We believe that a sound public health approach is the shortest, best, most cost-effective evidence based way to a rapid improvement of health in Sudan.
Our style of collaboration with our partners depends on the input required. We normally take the opportunity of social visits to Sudan to meet directly with partners, and run training sessions or workshops. There is wider opportunity to review documents and generally advise, assist and mentor via electronic communication.
