It was established in 2003 as a broad movement of vaccine and microbicides advocates. It resulted from outcomes of collaborative meetings held around the drafting of Nigeria’s National Vaccine Plan in 2001/2002; Networking among advocates after microbicide conferences in USA (2001), Belgium (2002) and advocates meeting at Microbicides 2004 in London (25 Nigerian advocates in attendance).
