Security, working and living conditions

Based in Khartoum, the Head of Programs will perform regular short-term missions to Darfur offices and to any other areas where new programs will be developed or could be developed. The security situation in Darfur is variable from place to place and period. Field visits are authorized when security conditions allow it. The movements to the field are ensured by United Nations Humanitarian Air Services- UNHAS.

Current social context in Sudan, especially in Khartoum, can lead to temporary tightened security procedures (movement restrictions, etc.).

Health risks are limited and there is little prevalence of malaria or other diseases in Khartoum. Adequate medical services are available in Khartoum.

The mission in Khartoum has a guesthouse, located on the second floor of the office. Internet is fine but with variable availability and stability; no problems with making and receiving International phone calls.

Khartoum enjoys different places for recreational and relaxation activities: markets, swimming pools, gardens, access to cultural sites out in Khartoum plus sites in other parts of Sudan. The social life is good, especially for those who like to sometimes create their own social life rather than depending on others. .

There are daily flights to regional destinations.
