National Health Minster Dr Aaron Motsoaledi delivered the annual Steve Lawn Memorial Lecture on Tuesday, 2 April, at the University of Cape Town’s (UCT) Institute of Infectious Disease & Molecular Medicine (IDM).

Hosted by the IDM and the Faculty of Health Sciences, along with the Desmond Tutu HIV Foundation and the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), the annual lecture honours the late Steve Lawn, who was a professor of infectious diseases and tropical medicine at the LSHTM and UCT. He was also closely linked to the Desmond Tutu HIV Centre and was funded by the Wellcome Trust.

Lawn, who was well known for his pioneering work on the diagnosis and treatment of tuberculosis among populations affected by HIV/AIDS, died in 2016.
