TALC is the Treatment Advocacy Literacy Campaign, a group of member organisations formed to lobby for equitable and sustainable access to affordable, quality HIV treatment, support and care in Zambia.
The mandate of TALC is to ensure that people living with HIV and AIDS (PLHA) are empowered to advocate for access to comprehensive treatment, support, care and respect for their rights.
TALC also advocates for the GIPA and MIPA principles to be upheld.
a)GIPA = Greater Involvement of people living with HIV and AIDS.
b) MIPA = Meaningful Involvement of PLHA.
Since its inception, TALC has been working hard to advance treatment advocacy and literacy in Zambia. The organization has made remarkable progress, and some of its key achievements in 2005 include:
Establishing Advocacy Resource Centre hubs in Kapiri Mposhi and Mongu with plans for more in Chipata, Livingstone and Lusaka
