The South Sudan Medical Journal has turned ten years since its inception in 2008 and is redesigning its website and print versions to prepare itself for the changing times and challenges. And we need your help! 
By taking part in our short online survey you not only help us to improve the SSMJ for our readers, but you also have the chance to enter a prize draw to win one of two prizes of 25 USD*. It should only take you 10-15 minutes to complete the survey, and by giving a small amount of your time you can make a big difference to the future image of SSMJ. We would value responses from all readers or other stakeholders with an interest in SSMJ. Complete the survey now, and we need all responses by Friday 13th October 2017. Thank you for sparing the time to help us.
To complete the survey, click on the link below and follow the simple, on-screen instructions:

* Only one prize draw entry per person is permitted. Winners will be selected randomly from all survey respondents who indicate they would like to be included in the prize draw. Winners will be contacted by email - please ensure you include an up-to-date email address when requested. In order to be eligible for a prize, you need to be in a position to receive a transfer of funds by Western Union.

Healthcare workers believe that access to good quality healthcare is a basic human right. The SSMJ's role is to empower these hard-working people by providing them with the information and resources that they need to fulfill this goal. 

We are a not-for-profit organisation that is staffed by volunteers. We rely on the generosity of the general public to allow us to continue our work in the developed and developing world.
