About this book

South Africa has the world's largest number of people living with HIV. This book offers a history of AIDS activism in South Africa from its origins in gay and anti-apartheid activism to the formation and consolidation of the Treatment Action Campaign (TAC), including its central role in the global HIV treatment access movement.

About the authors

Mandisa Mbali is a Lecturer in the Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology at the University of Stellenbosch in South Africa. She is a Rhodes scholar and obtained her doctorate in Modern History at the University of Oxford, UK. Mbali completed postdoctoral training at Yale University, USA and has published a journal article and book chapters on post–apartheid AIDS activism and policy-making.

Reviews

"The book is particularly good at demonstrating the ways in which the historical context affected the development of AIDS activism, and how the transition to democracy both opened up new opportunities and brought new difficulties . . . As Mbali's book rightly reminds us, the struggle for global health justice is founded on the work of grassroots campaigners. Activists really can make a difference." - International Affairs
