Sudan is the largest country in Africa, on the shores of the Red Sea between Ethiopia, Eritrea and Egypt. It is one of the poorest countries in the world. The biggest challenge facing governments and NGOs in Sudan is the plight of nearly 2 million refugee children in Darfur. The poor living conditions of children in the refugee camps can only make the incidence of HIV/AIDS rise. Currently (2005) the incidence is relatively low - 2.3%. There is no estimate of the number of AIDS orphans.

SOS Children, through the SOS Social Centres, has been suppoprting the local community with health and education programmes. In addition the charity is supporting and implementing the national and regional programme - Unite for Children Unite against HIV/AIDS
