  On 26 August, the Financial Sector Coalition Campaign (SACP, AIDS Consortium, TAC, Black Sash and ALP) held a picket outside AVBOB's offices in Johannesburg. AVBOB provides funeral insurance. The company argued that this was justifiable because the policy-holders had not disclosed their status when the policy was taken out. However, many people do not know their HIV status when they take out funeral policies, nor are they properly informed by brokers on the exclusion clauses in the policy. The Coalition had a number of meetings with AVBOB management calling on them to remove the disclosure clause. After the picket was announced, AVBOB called for a meeting with representatives of the coalition and informed them that a new product had been introduced as of 1 August 2003. This new product did not require medical examinations or disclosure, but only that the policy-holder does not die within 6 months of the policy being taken out. The Coalition has welcomed this new product.
