The portrait frames AIDS activist Zackie Achmat with the words “Alive with HIV” in the background – a reference not only to his having lived with the disease since 1990, but also to the positive achievements of this tireless campaigner for social justice. Achmat’s decision to refuse antiretroviral drugs until the government agreed to make them accessible to all South Africans was vital in creating awareness about the issue.
