CCS Seminar: Empowering Communities to Self-Mobilise: The TAC Method

Speaker: Mzamo Zondi
Date: Wednesday 27 February 2019
Time: 13:00-14:00
Venue: CCS Seminar Room A726, Level 7, Shepstone, Howard College, UKZN

The Treatment Action Campaign (TAC) has led a number of successful campaigns impacting on healthcare in South Africa. These include the struggle for HIV/AIDS treatment in the public health sector and the democratisation of medication provision during the antiretroviral treatment roll-out. Community mobilisation has been critical in these campaigns and have included participation from the most marginalised as well as relatively affluent and confident groups with strong pre-existing identities. However, the various victories have not yet led to sustainable health-enhancing social change. There is an urgent need therefore to revisit the wider ‘theory of change’ that informs mobilisation efforts. What forms of community mobilisation are most likely to advance social change towards more equal and health-enabling social relations? This is the topic of this seminar.
