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.

anti Xenophobia T-shirts

At the Canterbury street depot one of the volunteers who was wearing the T-shirt (that was distributed at the St.George's gathering) had crossed out the word 'foreigner' and written AFRICAN - that says it all - i think any future runs of the T-shirt should do the same: show the word foreigner striked out and have AFRICAN written below.
On another note: we put down our names as volunteer drivers but have not yet been contacted. Surely there is a huge need to move supplies around? I also wonder whether children need transporting to school or to the nearest train station - especially those in high school with mid year exams coming up. Are school principles being contacted regarding the children's safety?
