Who We Are

Women Advocates for Vaccine Access (WAVA) is a coalition of women-led Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) in Nigeria, dedicated to advancing immunization, primary health care (PHC), and health systems strengthening for the wellbeing of the public. Established in 2016, WAVA has over 50 members across Nigeria’s six geo-political zones

As a coalition, WAVA collaborates closely with national and sub-national partners to advocate for immunization and ensure continuous access to healthcare services throughout Nigeria. Our strong working relationships extend to key stakeholders such as the Nigerian government, including prominent health agencies like the National Primary Healthcare Development Agency (NPHCDA) and the Federal Ministry of Health. Additionally, we engage with state governments, state health agencies, and parliamentarians. WAVA’s footprint spans across at least 19 states in Nigeria, and we have established partnerships with local actors within these regions.

WAVA is also an esteemed member of various national immunization working groups, including the National Emergency Routine Immunization Coordinating Centre (NERICC), National COVID-19 Technical Working Group, and National Immunization Technical Advisory Group (NGITAG) on PHC and immunization-related activities. These memberships enable us to contribute effectively to policy development and implementation.


We envision a world where individuals irrespective of their gender, creed, value or physical attributes have unhindered access to the vaccines required for their well-being.


To support sustainable health systems where individuals have unfettered access to vaccines of their needs irrespective of their socio-economic status.
