Eastern Cape TAC members and volunteers reflect

The provinces are the heartbeat of the TAC. People are the heartbeat of the TAC. This is where we get our hands dirty. This is where the real work happens. TAC would be nothing without our more than 8 000 members. We proudly share some of their reflections on the TAC and 10 years of ARVs.


10 years of ARVs helped my brother’s wife, she started treatment in 2004 she is now healthy as ever. We used to bury people often we don’t anymore because now when you know you’re HIV positive we can encourage each other to go for treatment. Viva ARVs Viva!!!!!!

People used to be so sick they couldn’t even eat or walk and spent a lot of time bed-ridden now they live thanks to ARVs.

Our friends lives have improved a lot thanks to ARVs. People who use them live longer lives.
