Joyce Dzidzor summoned before AIDS Commission Board

HIV and AIDS Ambassador, Joyce Dzidzor Mensah, will appear before
Ghana Aids Commission Board later Wednesday following her
controversial claim she has never contracted the virus.

When Ms Dzidzor appears before the Commission this morning, she will
be probed about details of her controversial revelations.

Director of the Ghana AIDS Commission, Angel El-Adas, says Ms Mensah's
invitation is crucial to understanding her new stance on her HIV

Joyce Dzidzor Mensah, last Monday shocked the nation by declaring that
contrary to popular belief, she is not HIV positive.

She says she has been lying for the past four years about her HIV
status despite educating people on the disease and campaigning against
HIV/AIDS stigmatisation.

The Ghana AIDS Commission however insists Ms Mensah tested HIV positive in 2007.

"Many of our media partners have been trying to attribute all kinds of
reasons for what is happening now. Even some of our [donor] partners
have done that", Dr El-Adas said.

She said the outcome of today's encounter with the Ms Mensah will
determine the way forward on the matter.
