A 20-year-old girl told the story of how she contracted HIV in JoyNews’ Hotline Documentary which was recently aired.
According to Akosua (not her real name), she had unprotected sex with a man twice her age who promised to pay her registration fee to resit her West African Secondary School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) final exams after she failed two core subjects in her first sitting.

She is now one of the over 335,000 people living with the virus in Ghana. Here is the video below;
