The Treatment Action Campaign was established in Cape Town, South Africa on 10 December 1998. Over the past 18 years TAC has evolved into a world renowned social justice movement. It has been in the forefront of progressive social mobilization and advocacy within the health sector in South Africa, specifically in the HIV/AIDS arena. Its model has been effective in bringing about democratic social change in areas of health systems strengthening, universal access to life-saving anti-retroviral and TB medicines for all citizens, sexual and reproductive health, justice for marginalized populations and challenging inequality. TAC has more than 8 000 members and 230 branches in seven provinces.
In July and August 2017, TAC new leadership was elected in all seven provinces. During TAC’s 6th National Congress in August 2017, National Office Bearers were also elected.
