In May 2006, Judge Edwin Cameron, probably the most high-profile South African living openly with HIV, delivered a lecture at the University of KwaZulu-Natal in honour of Professor Ronald Louw. Professor Louw, a lecturer in the Faculty of Law at the university, a member of the Treatment Action Campaign and a human rights activist, had died a few weeks earlier of an AIDS-related illness. Despite his access to information about HIV, and to adequate resources to manage his illness, Professor Louw had not tested for HIV, and by the time his HIV status was discovered he was too ill to benefit from treatment.
