Invitation to press conference
Sudan Doctors’ Syndicate and its branches:

We would like to invite you to a press conference on:
Sudanese Professionals: A Drive Towards Freedom & Change
The conference aims to highlight the resilience and valour of Sudanese doctors who have been catapulted into caring for patients in a conflict zone whilst themselves being detained, beaten and shot at.
The Regime’s systematic breakdown of the health and education sectors and the massive brain drain during the 30 years of dictatorship does not come as a surprise.
The main emphasis will be on the challenges of the continuing struggle for freedom and the collaboration of all professionals in the making of a new Sudan.
