Student, 20, with HIV afraid to tell his parents

As a student in a tertiary institute, Brandon (not his real name) is used to taking tests.

But this was one examination that the 20-year-old had hoped to get a negative result on – a test for HIV.

Just after his 19th birthday, Brandon came down with a month-long fever.

Speaking to The New Paper on the condition of anonymity, Brandon said that back then, he told his parents and friends that it was dengue fever.

Deep down however, he suspected it was something more serious.

“I figured that it’s my problem so I have to deal with it myself, that’s why I went for the test alone. I didn’t want to rely on others,” said Brandon, who went to the Action for Aids (AFA) clinic in Kelantan Lane to get tested.

When the results were ready, an AFA volunteer took him to a “large, empty room” and broke the news to him.
