KwaZulu-Natal 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.


TAC and access to ARVs allowed our humanity to expand amongst the people of South Africa.
