Woman misdiagnosed with HIV seeks justice

Pregnant woman who tested HIV Positive in July tests negative

What you need to know:

  • Officials at the Kenya Medical Laboratory Technicians and Technologists Board (KMLTTB) took blood samples from Ms Esther Mwakazi two weeks ago for the advanced test in Nairobi.

  • Ms Mwakazi’s husband Fredrick Omondi said the quest for justice is becoming difficult as the board’s officials, who had promised to send them the results, are withholding them, citing differences with the National Aids and STI Control Programme (Nascop), which claims it was not involved when the tests were done.

A woman who was misdiagnosed with HIV in Kwale and put on ARVs for three months with her one-year-old son is seeking justice after another test by a government agency found that she was negative but the results are being withheld from her.
