Hundreds of Treatment Action Campaign (TAC) supporters marched on Monday to the
Durban International Convention Centre where the South African Aids Conference
is being held.
TAC spokesman S'bu Khanyile said the group was demanding that talks between the
government, labour, business and civil societies on the National Framework of
Treatment and Prevention Plan be resumed.
"If the plan is adopted and implemented, anti-retroviral drugs will be made
available in public-held institutions. We also demand that working conditions be
improved and condom-distributors broadened," Khanyile said.
The TAC received messages of support from Durban Gay and Lesbian Society which
also took part in the march.
Among the dignitaries attending the conference are national Health Minister
Manto Tshabalala-Msimang, health MECs from different provinces, Aids activists
