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 Council on a form determined by the Council for authority to
conduct such a clinical trial”.
“(5) No person shall conduct clinical trials referred to in
subregulation (1) without the authorisation of the Council.”
The Minister of Health has made statements to the media that the Department of Health has long been prepared to implement dual therapy regimens in all the provinces in South Africa, but has been prohibited by the 2001 Constitutional Court judgment in Minister of Health and Others v TAC and Others. She states that the judgment limited the Department of Health to implementing only 'monotherapy' nevirapine (NVP) to mothers with HIV to reduce mother-to-child transmission.
