According to Joyce Dzidzor Mensah, she was made to believe she was HIV positive....
Joyce Dzidzor Mensah revealed in a n interview on Tuesday that she was made to believe she was HIV positive although she had not contracted the disease.
She said after being ejected from her house because she was being stigmatised based on the fact that people thought she was positive, she had no other option than to find solace among the Network of Persons Living with HIV (NAP+).
The former AIDS ambassador Joyce Dzidzor Mensah, a divorcee with two children on Monday revealed that she was HIV negative, a claim her ex-husband, Ghana AIDS Commission and NAP+ have denied.
Joyce however, insists she is negative but had to parade herself as HIV positive to save the lives of women living with the disease.
She said in an interview on Joy FM Tuesday morning “I didn’t lie…I was stigmatised base on the fact that people thought I was positive. And being ejected from my house I didn’t have anywhere else to go than to go to those who are positive. I was made to believe that I was positive so I had to do what I did to save others. All that I lied about was about my status and that is why I brought out this just to apologise,”
