Maisoon has five years of experience in the nonprofit sector. She earned a Bachelor’s degree in medical laboratory technology from Sudan University of Science and Technology with advanced expertise in microscopic malariology. This medical background has provided her with the foundation to work in different medical fields and related programs. In addition, being a citizen of Darfur, she gained extensive experience in humanitarian, protection, and human rights issues of disadvantaged communities, particularly reproductive and health rights of internally displaced persons (IDPs). Her experience covers peer education, women and children’s health, rural development, and conflict resolution. She worked for various nonprofits and private laboratories where she was involved in coordination, planning, monitoring and evaluation of different programs focusing on the training of youth and medical personnel. As a master trainer for UNFPA under the Youth Peer project, she helped implement their outreach programs, including those held in collaboration with the Sudan National AIDS Control Programme (SNAP).
