Dear Subscribers to the TAC Electronic Newsletter

We have made improvements to the TAC website. We hope you will find the new information as well as the new look and feel useful. Also, you can register to be a user of the TAC website and you can write comments on TAC articles or even write your own stories for our Community page.

Essential HIV Information

http://www.tac.org.za/community/hivhelp

This page is one of the most frequently visited on the site and contains useful contact information and advice for people at risk of HIV infection or already infected with HIV. We update it regularly. For example we updated it today with the contact details of probono.org, an organisation that offers free legal services to poor people who have been discriminated against.

TAC's Treatment Literacy Materials

http://www.tac.org.za/community/treatmentliteracy

This page lists most of TAC's treatment literacy publications as well as useful materials from other organisations such the Southern African HIV Clinicians Society and the World Health Organisation. You can also download back issues of TAC's magazine, Equal Treatment here:

http://www.tac.org.za/community/equaltreatment

Health facilities

A list of post-exposure prophylaxis facilities obtained from the South African Police Services is available here:

http://www.tac.org.za/community/pep

Lists of health facilities where antiretroviral treatment is available are provided here:

http://www.tac.org.za/community/arvsites

Some doctors who treat people with HIV are listed here:

http://www.tac.org.za/community/doctorswhotreatHIV

We often get requests for names of doctors who treat HIV. Therefore, we would like to update this list regularly. Please send names and contact details of doctors who treat HIV to info@tac.org.za. No quacks or charlatans please; only bona fide medical practitioners.

Medicine Prices

We purchase the latest private sector antiretroviral medicine prices from Medprax on a weekly basis. The price list can be found here:

http://www.tac.org.za/community/node/2021

State tender medicine prices are available here:

HIV Statistics

http://www.tac.org.za/community/keystatistics

Many researchers and journalists contact us to find HIV statistics. We have therefore set up this page.

Donating to TAC

http://www.tac.org.za/community/donate

We have greatly improved our website donation system. There are a variety of ways to donate to TAC, including via facebook.

Heywood on Health

http://www.tac.org.za/community/heywood

Mark Heywood's series on politics and health is a work in progress. We update it every few weeks.

Finally, we've updated our newsletter software. Instead of subscribing or unsubscribing using the old method, these are now handled directly on the TAC website.

Many more improvements are planned, including better organisation of TAC's campaign documents.

Please send feedback on errors or omissions on the website to info@tac.org.za.
