- Joyce Dzidzor says her recent suicide threat was just a stunt
- This is according to graphic.com who called the police over the matter
- The suicide note from Joyce detailed how she still suffers from stigma and poverty
The former HIV/AIDS ambassador, Joyce Dzidzor, says her recent suicide note was just a stunt. Joyce sent shock waves to family and friends when she penned down what has been reported as a suicide note detailing why she will be killing herself and children.
In this suicide note cited on her Facebook wall, Joyce lamented over the stigma she has suffered as an HIV/AIDS ambassador and the economic hardship she currently is facing.
According to the former HIV/AIDS ambassador, she could barely fend for the needs of her children whose father died of the disease some years back.
After wild reactions to her suicidal note, Joyce allayed fears of friends describing the entire note as a 'stunt'.
Graphic online, which reported this story, says they "quickly deployed to salvage the situation if she indeed intended to carry through the threat. Happily, the controversial actor told friends it was only a stunt to better the peace of her children."
The woes of Joyce is an issue of national concern especially when the Ghana AIDS Commission has revealed that stigma against persons living with HIV continues to be a hindrance to effective treatment and management of the virus.
Reports from the commission show that the prevalence rate of HIV/AIDS increased by 80 percent in 2017 alone.
Ghana remains one of the countries that rely heavily on funding from donor partners for anti-retroviral treatment.
What this means is that should these partners refuse not give in aid, Ghana's HIV management could be on the brink of a health threat. According to the report, government only contributes 7 percent to the funding of HIV drugs with 93 percent of the money coming from the private sector. As it stands now, the Volta and Brong Ahafo regions are the hardest when it comes to HIV infections.
