Background of the Sudan Media Forum

As Sudan grapples with the aftermath of conflict, the Sudan Media Forum issues a fervent call to the global community. Urging support for the Sudanese people and swift diplomatic resolutions to the crisis, the Forum underscores the importance of international solidarity in times of strife. With the support of the global community, the Sudanese media remains resolute in its mission to uncover the truth and pave the way towards a brighter future for Sudan.

The Sudan Media Forum is committed to journalistic principles and the pursuit of truth. Journalists and media professionals across Sudan continue to fulfil their duty to inform the public, expose human rights violations, and advocate for peace and accountability, and the forum aims to collectively support these efforts.
