About SAPA

Who Are We?

Sudanese American Physicians Association (SAPA) is a not-for-profit, scientific professional, non-partisan, and humanitarian membership-based organization established in January 2019, for physicians of Sudanese descent living and working within the United States to provide support networking, education among physicians within the United States as well as collaboration with physicians and healthcare organizations in Sudan and abroad.

Formal members have significant input in the governance and operations of the organization by electing all board of directors and executive committee associates. They are encouraged and expected to play an active role in the design and implementation of the organization’s programs.  Elected board and executive committee associates need to be able to leave their personal and professional agendas behind and make decisions only for the best of the entire organization.


The vision of SAPA, as a medical diaspora organization, is to provide a forum for physicians and other medical professionals of Sudanese descent to engage and collaborate with their colleagues within the United States, Sudan, and across the world, as well as to contribute to the development of health policy and the delivery of quality health care services in its Members’ communities.


The mission of SAPA is to develop and maintain a strong and dynamic professional society that (1) supports the advancement of its Members, (2) is responsive to the needs of its Members’ communities within the United States and Sudan, and (3) aids in fulfilling its Member’s philanthropic endeavors within the United States and Sudan.


The values which shall guide SAPA’s operations include the upholding of human rights, health equity and social justice through an unparalleled commitment to a professional code of conduct, inclusion, dignity, respect, integrity, stewardship, teamwork and excellence. To this end, neither SAPA nor its Members shall discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status, in any of their activities or operations.
