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.

Although TAC and the AIDS Law Project support many aspects of the Bill, we have concerns about some of its objectives and provisions, as well as significant omissions that specifically relate to health and social services. In brief, the submission expressed the following concerns:
TAC and ALP also endorsed the separate submissions made on the same Bill by Lawyers for Human Rights and the Legal Resources Centre.
