What we aim to solve

Health services in Sudan in the public sector are scares and fragmented. The high inflation rate is making health care beyond the reach of an increased proportion of the general population. While medicine and supplies are priced with the increase of foreign currency, the individual income remains unchanged. This has led to great disparity in the services delivered in various parts of the country.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
