We do not update this page very often unfortunately. TAC has a huge collection of photographs. Only some of them are in digital format, even fewer are on the website and not all of them are on this page. We have not at this stage sorted our photographs for easy access, so if you do email us requesting a photograph, we might not be able to meet your request.
See the back issues of Equal Treatment (available on the website by selecting Equal Treatment on the menu) for more photographs.
NB: We have planned major improvements to the campaigns part of the website.
Cape Town and Windhoek, 12 July 2007.
At a press conference in Johannesburg this morning, Nobel Laureate Nadine Gordimer and South African singer, Ringo Madlingozi, joined the Treatment Action Campaign in making a call for all people in South Africa and internationally to work together to prevent new HIV infections and ensure treatment for people with AIDS. They supported TAC’s call for actions of solidarity by the influential and successful with the poor and marginalised.
Madlingozi talked about his mission as a musician to “create music that will heal” and pledged that one track on his coming album would be dedicated to the TAC and its community work. He called on young women to protect themselves from HIV by carrying condoms and ensuring that they are not forced into sexual relationships.
Gordimer reported that her book “Telling Tales”, a collection of short stories by internationally acclaimed writers, including 5 Nobel Laureates, was now available in 16 different languages. The book is making no profit for the authors or publishers and all royalties are being donated to the Treatment Action Campaign. Gordimer handed

INTRODUCTION AND SUMMARY
1.The Treatment Action Campaign (TAC) is a voluntary association of individuals and organisations dedicated to ensuring access to affordable and quality treatment for all people with HIV/AIDS, to preventing and eliminating new HIV infections, and to improving the affordability and quality of health-care access for all.
Over 70 delegates from 21 African countries met in Cape Town from 22 to
24 August to begin developing a pan-African HIV/AIDS treatment access
movement. The following declaration is an outcome of that meeting. Please
distribute far and wide.
PAN-AFRICAN HIV/AIDS TREATMENT ACCESS MOVEMENT: DECLARATION OF ACTION
We are angry. Our people are dying.
Without treatment, the 28 million people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWAs) on
our continent today will die predictable and avoidable deaths over the
next decade. More than 2 million have died of HIV/AIDS in Africa just
this year. This constitutes a crime against humanity. Governments,

intervene without delay to prevent a holocaust against the poor. We must
ensure access to antiretroviral (ARV) treatment as part of a comprehensive
continuum of care for all people with HIV who need it. In this regard,
at a minimum, we call for the immediate implementation of the World Health
Organisation goal to ensure antiretroviral (ARV) treatment for at least
We would like to commend the decision of Justice Edwin Cameron for his stand on openness before the Judicial Services Commission today. For many years before his appointment as a Judge, Justice Cameron was one of the pioneers of calls for human rights, equality, dignity and privacy for all people -- including people with HIV and AIDS. His decision today is in keeping with this.
