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.
Thembeka Majali, was born on 30 October 1974. She is the Provincial Co-ordinator of the Western Province. She has been a member of TAC from the end of 1999 during the TAC PMTCT signature campaign in Khayelitsha after attending a workshop organised by Khayelitsha AIDS Concerned Group and Kaag. This is where she learnt about TAC and access to treatment for people living with HIV, mentioning that treatment was not affordable because drug prices were high.
She has been involved in the student movement PASO (Pan Africanist Student Organisation) during her high school days. At the time of her involvement they campaigned for "Scrap examination fee" for matric students, because many parents could not afford to pay exam fees for their children. Exam fees was cancelled in 1993.At tertiary (UWC) she continued with her involvement in student politics under the banner of Pan Africanist Student movement and she was a branch secretary in 1998.
