Duha Ali

Duha Ali is a medical doctor, and an aspiring Obstetrician/Gynecologist, with over 6 years of experience in promoting women’s health and rights, primarily from a sexual and reproductive health and rights aspect, through youth mobilization and capacity building.  She founded the Sudanese Women’s March Campaign and the Girl Child Campaign, both youth-led initiatives that target women and girls in underserved communities to raise their medical, sexual, and reproductive health awareness, address the forms of discrimination facing them, and work towards eradicating the prevailing stigma on SRHR. As a medical professional and a soft skills trainer, she trains and mobilizes youth in the medical field to be catalysts for promoting public health, positive social change, cultural reform, and women’s empowerment.

Duha worked on the frontlines of healthcare provision during times of crisis, including the Covid-19 pandemic and the current raging armed conflict in Sudan, navigating crises and delivering high-quality care even in the most trying circumstances.

Duha aspires to provide holistic sexual and reproductive healthcare services by merging ideal clinical practice, integrated sexual and reproductive health and rights knowledge and grassroots civic engagement to become a comprehensive healthcare provider in this tragically disconnected field.
