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.

Annie Lennox has released a single titled SING. SING is the second single from her new album Songs of Mass Destruction. It is aimed at raising international awareness of the impact of HIV/AIDS in South Africa, particularly the epidemic's toll on women and children, and will be accompanied by a media and web campaign to encourage people to actively get involved in reversing the course of the HIV/AIDS pandemic. Featuring the vocal talents of 23 major female artists, including Angelique Kidjo, Madonna, Melissa Etherdige, Dido, Pink, Shakira, Fergie and Céline Dion, proceeds from the SING single will be donated to TAC. Also featured on the single are the members of TAC's choir The Generics, whose 2001 song on preventing mother-to-child transmission, Jikelele, provides the outro to SING.
