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.

TAC income and expenditure in response to people displaced by xenophobic violence

On Friday 23 May 2008, the TAC began co-ordinating an emergency response to assist people displaced by xenophobic violence. TAC raised an unprecedented amount of money and goods and services donations from the public. In the interests of transparency, we provide here a draft income and expenditure statement for activities up to 3 September 2008. Our response continues, albeit that we are winding it down. The income and expenditure sheet below excludes the donations, many of them very large, and discounts we received. The reconciliation below is draft, subject to change and unaudited. TAC's audits are usually completed in September of each year and report up to the end of our financial year-end in February.
