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 TAC Treatment Project (TP) is a Section 21 (on-profit) company established by the Treatment Action Campaign to make affordable Highly Active Antiretro-viral Therapy (HAART) available to people living with HIV/AIDS in South Africa. This will be done on a fully, partially or unsubsidised basis, depending on patient circumstances.
Fully subsidised treatment (including medicines, labo-ratory monitoring and doctors' consultations) will be made available to an equal number of treatment acti-vists and community members not members of the TAC. In other words, for every TAC (or other treatment access) activist treated there will be a corresponding community member treated.
The Chairperson of the TAC Treatment Project is Vuyiseka Dubula and the treasurer is Zackie Achmat. The other directors are Gavin Brown (pharmacist), Dr Kwezi Matoti (principal medical officer), Sharon Ekambaram, Colwyn Poole, Nomfundo Dubula, Siphokazi Mthathi, Vuyani Jacobs, Thembi Zungu, Pholokgolo Ramothwala, Thabo Cele, Thembeka Majali and Mandla Majola.
