Sudan

Sudan is a Northeastern African country with a population of 37 million and a life expectancy at birth of 60 years (males) and 64 years (females). The Sudanese Government is organized as a decentralized federal state; after years of conflict and the secession of South Sudan in 2011, the country continues to suffer from significant health inequities between regions as well as between urban and rural areas. A National Health Sector Strategy 2012-2016 places universal health coverage and primary health care high on the Ministry of Health’s agenda within the framework of a decentralized local health system. The UHC Partnership has supported the formulation of the National Health Policy 2017 – 2030, emphasizing the Health in All Policies approach.
