The Nigerian Medical Students Association (NiMSA) is the umbrella body of all Medical Students (over 60,000) in the thirty-eight Colleges of Medicine across all the states of the Federation and the FCT. NiMSA is also affiliated to the Federation of African Medical Students (FAMSA) and the International Federation of Medical Students Association (IFMSA). The parent body of NiMSA is the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA).
The Standing Committee on Environment and Population Activities (SCOEPA) is the arm of the NiMSA saddled with the arduous task of following the Environmental trend as well as the Population of the Nation.
A two day international Summit on environment with Theme Climate Change; A global menace that can be halted locally, comes up between 6th 7th of September, 2012 in University of Abuja Teaching hospital, Gwagwalada, Abuja.

- Train peer educators and activists.
- Advocate to both the Government and Policy Makers on the need to institute and implement good environmental friendly policies.
- Work with the media in ensuring every issue on environmental and population abuse is well covered and properly addressed.
