Kiconco narrates that she went to Kabwohe health centre IV and took blood samples which turned out HIV positive.
The 36 year old explains that doctors advised her to start taking ARV’S which she did for some years but later developed general body weakness with her skin turning yellowish.
She decided to seek medical assistance at Mbarara Regional referral hospital where she was tested for the second time and results turned out to be negative.
