About

The South Sudan Medical Journal (SSMJ) was started in February 2008, as the Southern Sudan Medical Bulletin (SSMB), a joint venture between Southern Sudanese and British doctors who wanted to make a free, accessible journal for all branches of healthcare in South Sudan. It published regular quarterly journals that were distributed and read by healthcare staff in government and non-government organisations (NGO’s) throughout the region.

On the 16th April 2009 the SSMB became a charity and was renamed  the Southern Sudan Medical Journal.

Our vision is to see a well trained, skilled professionals delivering high quality healthcare to the population of the Southern Sudan. Our mission is to publish research and clinical guidance that will positively influence the development of healthcare services in Southern Sudan.

We recognise the importance of understanding the cultural values of the people we serve. In line with this, half of our staff are local healthcare professionals working in the Southern Sudan, whilst the rest of the team are based in the UK. This enables us to effectively contribute to healthcare development in the country.

In line with South Sudan’s independence in July 2011 the charity was renamed South Sudan Medical Journal. This is the charity’s official blog where you will be able to find interesting and relevant news relating to health matters in South Sudan.

  1. Hi there,

    My name is Monica Abdelkader and I am a psychosocial worker with Africa and Middle East Refugee Assistance (a UK-based agency working in Cairo, Egypt). We have recently seen some cases of clients coming from South Sudan who are unable to access dialysis for renal failure in South Sudan and as such must find this medical treatment elsewhere. We cannot find any information on this, and are looking for some to be able to advocate on the behalf of our clients with the UNHCR. I would really appreciate if I could get in touch with some medical practitioners working in South Sudan who can confirm this and possibly answer other questions we may have in regards to the work that you do in South Sudan. Thanks so much!

    Sincerely,
    Monica
