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.

The Generics - Ileta / The Letter

I received a letter from TAC
It speaks nicely saying Biozole is now available
Oh Zackie Achmat we love you
Ola Zackie our buddy, son of Achmat.
We solute you brother, all of us here in South Africa.
You sacrificed your life going all the way to Thailand to import Biozole illegally.
You were defying the state.
You have shown that here in South Africa we can make it.
We can defeat HIV brother.
Now we salute you baba!
Keep up the good work.
Make it a point we don't suffer the way we suffering now.
Simply because we see the state doesn't care about us any longer.
We are always going to be behind you offering you support all the way in every action you are doing.
Doctors without borders (MSF) and MSF staff coming from overseas to help people.
We appreciate what you did for our people.
We say keep up the good work.
TAC salutes all.
