Mohammed has over three years of experience in the nonprofit sector, and earned a Bachelor’s degree in Medicine and Surgery from the University of Khartoum and a Master’s degree in Public Health from the University of Medical Sciences and Technology. Mohammed was the National Officer on Research Exchange and President of the Medical Students International Network (MedSIN–Sudan), an NGO which represents the future physicians of Sudan worldwide. After joining graduate school, Mohammed and his colleagues founded the Rebuilding Reproductive and Child Health Systems in Post Conflict Settings Initiative (ReReCHI) which is an official partner of the WHO Alliance for Health Policy and Systems Research. During that time, he also worked in post-conflict southern Sudan and was the head of Training and Capacity Building for the ReReCHI. Throughout the year, he conducted research that supported evidence-based health systems decisions and policies for health sector planners, analysts, policymakers, program designers, and other stakeholders. He also trained people ranging from illiterate women to PhD students in post-conflict southern Sudan. Due to great success of the initiative, the University of Medical Sciences and Technology formed the Reproductive and Child Health Research Unit, which is the first of its kind in Sudan. Mohammed also worked on projects for UNICEF and the EU mission in Sudan.
