Acting Director General of the Ghana AIDS Commission (GAC), Steve Kyeremeh Atuahene has called on Ghanaians to pray for former HIV/AIDS Ambassador, Joyce Dzidzor Mensah.

Aside from the prayers, Mr Kyeremeh Atuahene said Madam Dzidzor Mensah needed a psychological evaluation.

“She came out to admit that she was HIV positive after declaring publicly that she was not but for now, all we would ask from Ghanaians is to pray for her”, AIDS Ambassador, Mr Kyeremeh Atuahene said.




“Doctors, especially, should volunteer to assist her psychologically because we think she really needs help,” he added.

In December 2014, Dzidzor publicly announced that she lied about her HIV/AIDS status for years and had never tested positive for the disease before working with the Ghana AIDS commission as an HIV/AIDS ambassador.

After that declaration, she has been on several media platforms trying to defend her actions, even though she has received widespread criticisms from Ghanaians and the Ghana AIDS Commission.

However, in 2016, she made a shocking U-turn to say she, indeed, tested positive for the virus.

She had to lie about her status to protect her children from stigmatisation.
