Ghanaian Actress and former AIDS Ambassador, Joyce Dzidzor Mensah is trending on social media after she tested positive for HIV on Facebook live.
The actress went public with the test to prove to Ghanaians that she is not a carrier of the disease, but it ended badly as the test came back positive.
According to reports from Ghanaian media, Mensah admitted to being HIV-positive in 2019 but following attacks and stigmatization, she repeatedly denied having the virus.
To further clear doubting Thomases, Joyce stormed Ghana from Germany to undergo the test. She held a press conference which was attended by several media houses and took the test in their presence.
While addressing the newsmen, she said,
“The purpose of his gathering is to clear all doubt and officially apologise on certain things that happened during my time as Ghana AIDS Ambassador. So many things went wrong and I have seen where I fell short so I decided to fly all the way from Germany to make sure I contribute to ending this issue. I am only here to right the wrongs”
When the results came out, she tested positive for the virus while her kids – one boy and one girl – tested negative.
The family took a test at one Cocoa Clinic in Ghana before the live testing and both results confirmed that she is HIV positive.
