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.
