Universal Health Coverage Partnership

Country Profile - 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. Significant regional and urban–rural disparities represent huge challenges to the Ministry of  Health.  The National Health Sector Strategy 2012-16 places universal health coverage and primary health care high on its agenda within the framework of a decentralized local health system.
