Treatment Literacy

The TAC’s flagship treatment literacy programme remains key to our model of highly informed grassroots activism. TAC is committed to teaching the science and treatment of HIV/AIDS, TB and other diseases to our members and the general public. This programme helps people understand the importance of taking treatment as prescribed. Branch leaders are trained and subsequently facilitate trainings at a branch, community and clinic level. In addition, accurate and informative materials related to adherence and treatment literacy are disseminated through localised social mobilisation campaigns. We are currently in the process of updating our Treatment Literacy Manual – you can access the last version here.
