dc.description.abstract Before South Africa became famous for implementing the largest public sector antiretroviral (ARV) treatment program in the world, it was infamous for the Mbeki government’s refusal to recognize the efficacy, safety and sustainability of ARVs and his administration’s endorsement of “vitamins and vegetables” as efficacious HIV/AIDS treatments (Cullinan & Thom 2009). The activism required to bring about this policy transformation has been extensively documented by treatment activists themselves (Geffen 2010), and by academics who have sought to explain how these struggles have reconfigured the contours of postapartheid citizenship (Robins 2010), social rights and intellectual property rights law (Pieterse 2014, Kapstein & Busby 2013), transnational activism for access to essential medicines (Mbali 2013), and the political and economic feasibility of providing free ARVs to all who need them (Nattrass 2004). en_ZA
