Millions of women in South Africa are infected with HIV, most of whom are eligible for free treatment, but many patients take medicine secretly because they are afraid to give up.
The BBC reporter had just talked to one of these, and the woman with the fake name Julia revealed why.
She was diagnosed after the third pregnancy test. She did not get HIV from her husband, but she got HIV from her partner before her husband. My wife lied to me that I had a high blood pressure problem, so I put antiviral therapy in one to control the pressure.

No one knows about HIV except doctors. AIDS patients in South Africa are exposed to tremendous stigma. Julia fears that her husband will divorce and accidentally see her reaction because no one is there to care for her children.
He does not know whether it is infected, so he claims to have a condom during sex and explains to his husband that he does not want more children. Julia's sister has already died of AIDS and is raising her daughter. Julia decided to take her and her secrets to her grave, and she tries to take her medicine regularly so that she can live and take care of her children for as long as possible.
Michael Sidibem, Secretary General of UNAIDS, argued that almost all children with AIDS in Africa live in the world and that all children can receive antiretroviral treatment.
Fifty percent of children with AIDS die before their 5th birthday and die because there are no available treatments available to other children around the world, UNAIDS chief executive officer said.
Rachel Daley, 49, who works for a local charity in Harpenden, UK, also has HIV and was diagnosed 10 years ago.
The mother of three children and the grandmother of four grandchildren suffered from a man they met online.
22 years ago, he reported to the girl that it disappeared after returning home. Now his terrible fate was revealed in an amazing way.

After 20 years of dating, I wanted to meet new people, including potential partners, over the Internet. I was 39 years old and wanted to continue my life. I met two children and a construction worker named Simon who married after that. He was charismatic and attractive, so we started a relationship soon. Never asked about his sexual past or health, and the relationship itself lasted for months. In his apartment, tears came after finding evidence that he was cheating.
A few weeks later I went to the doctor for swollen lymph nodes, sore throat and fever. He looked HIV-like to rule out HIV because his symptoms looked like malaria but he wasn't abroad.
After two weeks, I got a shock. I didn't know much about HIV and AIDS and believed it was a death sentence. Honestly, I thought that this disease only affects African people. I was embarrassed and afraid and could not blame anyone but myself.
I began to study the disease, received a lot of support from local associations and helped me understand all the ambiguities. I hated having to take medicine, but I still knew I was lucky to have not been diagnosed in the 80's or 90's.
I had no side effects, so today, 10 years later, thanks to medication, I can live a happy and satisfying life. Did not suffer from depression before the diagnosis. It is a place you can't find anywhere. I wake up every morning feeling happy and blessed.

I have a relationship and my partners have no problems with HIV infection, they have sex with protection. It's still amazing how ignorant people are, and some people think they can get sick through a towel, toilet or cup. For the younger generation, it should be explained that unprotected sex can lead to a diagnosis.
