Tracy Swan

Consultant, New York

Tracy has been active in HIV-related work since 1990; she added hepatitis C in 1998. Since then, she has worked at community health centers, hospitals, syringe exchange and addiction treatment programs, correctional facilities and homeless shelters.
These experiences informed her work as Hepatitis/HIV Project Director at Treatment Action Group (TAG), where Ms. Swan combined her passion for social justice with her interest in research and policy from 2003 until 2016. During that time, Ms. Swan served as a community representative to the AIDS Clinical Trials Group and the US FDA Antiviral Advisory Committee. She has worked with allies around the world to advocate for evidence-based policies to create and broaden access to affordable, high-quality HCV information, prevention, diagnostics, care and treatment for people who use and inject drugs. Ms. Swan worked in the communications department at the Médecins Sans Frontières Access Campaign from 2016- 2017. She now works as an independent consultant with other activists, non-governmental and UN agencies, with a focus on access to treatment for HIV and HCV and education.
