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.

ARV Poster Series

ARV Poster Series
Publication Year: 

A set of eight posters covering various aspects antiretroviral treatment. Aimed at everyone.



I am an HIV AIDS Peer Educator. I am Indian.

Why is it that almost all your posters feature only non White and non Indian South Africans. I have found only 1 poster with a White person in it.

If I have to utilize these posters to educate my colleagues on HIV AIDS prevention and treatment, majority of them will be offended as it seems as if (the message the posters send out) is that this disease affects non White and non Indian persons.

And we know this is not true. We need to impact the message that this disease affects everyone regardless of nationality, in a visual way.

I can't do this if I cannot represent all South African in the media available.

Please advise.
