The pain of confidential

One May Sunday a woman, respected in her Jos congregation, tested for HIV along with her adult children and agreed to be open with their status.

They were shocked to find she was HIV positive, but also glad to know so she could receive treatment. Openness meant they were able to share within the family.

“Until that day the family had not known her husband was HIV positive, even though he knew. He has a senior government role and works in another state so is not home all the time,” said international coordinator Tassie Ghata.

“Their children were very angry with their father to begin with, but they have now forgiven him and are grateful to Grace & Light for helping their mum. She is now on drugs and doing well.”
