JoyNews Hotline Documentary has shared the video of the conversation they had with a 20-year-old girl who contracted HIV from a man who offered to take care of her exam fees.
According to Akosua (not her real name), she had unprotected sex with the man who was twice her age after he encouraged her for being hard working and 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.
“Later on he invited me to his house, I went to his house, I did not know what came and we had sexual intercourse,” Akosua recounted.
She is now one of the over 335,000 people living with the virus in Ghana. Watch the video below.
