From AIDS Wiki
Anthony Brink is a South African advocate. He is the chairman of the Treatment Information Group (TIG) and was declared "South Africa's top AIDS dissident" by the Democratic Alliance. (Democratic Alliance 2007)
Brink learned microbiology from his grandfather and became involved in the HIV debate in 1996. In 1999, he self-published Debating AZT. This book was read by South African president Thabo Mbeki and ultimately led to the formation of the South African Presidential AIDS Advisory Panel the following year.
In 2006, Brink published The trouble with nevirapine. He is currently working on a new book, Just Say Yes, Mr. President: Mbeki and AIDS.
Conflicts with Treatment Action Campaign (TAC)
On 4 January 2007, Brink and the TIG served a 59-page draft bill of indictment at the International Criminal Court at The Hague, in which they apply for the prosecution of TAC leader Zackie Achmat on a charge of genocide for his direct criminal role in the deaths of thousands of South Africans from ARV poisoning. The bill of indictment can be found in the documents below.
