WACI Health is an Africa regional advocacy organization, which influences political priorities through an effective, evidence-driven Pan-African civil society voice and action. WACI Health strives to ensure that health investments and policies translate into practice, and into health impact. WACI Health’s strategic approach, as outlined in their strategic plan (2016-2021), include policy and advocacy; strengthening southern advocacy; and civil society engagement in key decision making processes. WACI’s theory of change is dynamic and interactive, with all of the strategies working together to impact three areas of global health work: (1) increased resources for health; (2) policies that improve health and achieve equity in health; (3) accountability in health governance and delivery.
