Abstract: In this paper by the Sudan Health Consultancy group, we share and reflect on our own experiences of making a systematic diaspora contribution to Sudan. We feel that our contribution to Sudan has been facilitated greatly by: firstly, the way we organise ourselves as a group and our collective skills and expertise, secondly, our partnership working and how we have systematically partnered with influential organisations and practically, by planning and tracking our work programme, and ensuring we make the time to deliver voluntary contributions to deadline. This paper therefore sets out how we are organised, and highlights our work programme. We hope this will stimulate other groups to set themselves up formally as we have, and also encourage further members to join the Sudanese Public Health Network.
