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 - I Was Sitting

Oh! I Was Sitting in the dark dying of Aids.
Zackie arrived, arrived MSF to set me free.
They set me free
I didn't know about this TAC.
Then Sipho arrived and taught me
I didn't know anything about the anti-retrovirals drugs until MSF came to educate me
They set me free
Oh! Come, come mother, come father, come sister, together with your big brother.
We are going to defeat HIV
Defeat it......HIV
