CTAC is a national non-governmental organization run by and for people living with HIV/AIDS, including those who are

for people living with HIV/AIDS. CTAC's Board of Directors seeks members with diverse skills and representation; including
legal, strategic-thinking and experienced in treatment access. CTAC is currently going through a renewal process that
includes the Board of Directors transitioning from a working board to a governance policy board. CTAC's Board of
Directors are the ambassadors of the organization and promote its work across the country.
