Topic - Treatment Action Campaign

The Treatment Action Campaign is a South African AIDS activist organization which was founded by the HIV-positive activist Zackie Achmat in 1998. TAC is rooted in the experience of its founder and many of its members with direct action tactics and in the South African trade union and anti-apartheid movements. TAC has been credited with forcing the reluctant government of former South African President Thabo Mbeki to begin making antiretroviral drugs available to South Africans. TAC is aligned to but often critical of the ruling African National Congress. - Source: Wikipedia
