This is an archive of the Treatment Action Campaign's public documents from December 1998 until October 2008. I created this website because the TAC's website appears unmaintained and people were concerned that it
was becoming increasingly hard to find important documents.

The menu items have been slightly edited and a new stylesheet applied to the site. But none of the documents have been edited, not even for minor errors. The text appears on this site as obtained from the Internet Archive.

The period covered by the archive encompassed the campaign for HIV medicines, the civil disobedience campaigns, the Competition Commission complaints, the 2008 xenophobic violence and the PMTCT, Khayelitsha health workers and Matthias Rath court cases.

Why has the TAC Launched the Fluconazole Campaign?

The fluconazole campaign (FC) is essential for the following reasons:

  • The medicine is desperately needed for people with AIDS. Once it is affordable, it will prolong and improve the quality of life of many South Africans.
  • It is one of the clearest examples of profiteering reducing life expectancy.
  • It will show the SA government and that the TAC is serious about assisting with lower drug costs.
