Limpopo 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.


It means a lot that as the TAC we won this battle but they say “a battle won means a battle born”, we fought for ARV treatment access now we have to fight that people adhere to treatment.

My wish is for us to enjoy another 10 years of ARVs
– Mavis Mangena

I really wish for us to find a cure in the next 10 years

TAC has been at the forefront of preventing AIDS-related death and we need to keep going.

People are living more freely than before without being stigmatised. HIV is now like any normal chronic illness.

15 people were dying every day. This has changed thanks to ARVs. But we need to be smarter about getting the drugs to people.
– Doreen Ramaselele

TAC saved a lot of lives by fighting for access to ARVs. Without medical aids we used to die. Now we give birth to HIV negative children.
– Francina Chauke

A lot of lives have been saved thanks to the TAC, but we still have a way to go.

I feel like one of the luckiest people in the world being able to get ARVs. I trust it. It works. I wish for a cure.
– Nivea Mathebula

There has been a dramatic decrease in deaths, but I want to see zero deaths. People must not see themselves as sick.
