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 Population Council has released the results of a microbicide trial conducted in South Africa with the Medical Research Council, University of Cape Town (UCT) and Medical University of South Africa (MEDUNSA) in Isipingo (near Durban), Gugulethu (in Cape Town) and Soshanguve (near Pretoria). The trial found that the microbicide Carraguard was no more effective at reducing HIV transmissions than a placebo. Carraguard was however found to be safe.
