Inspirational Mum: Living With HIV

INFORMED she was HIV positive aged 11, Paida Mutopo believed she would never be able to have children for fear of passing on the condition. But despite carrying the potentially fatal virus, Paida, now 20, from Rochdale in Manchester, gave birth to her son Kai five months ago. Tests have confirmed that Kai is HIV free and the proud mother is now out to teach the world that HIV is no longer a death sentence - or even a barrier to becoming a parent. Paida, who contracted HIV from her mum Mavis, has now set her sights on going to university to study social work to help build a bright future for her and Kai. She also uses public speaking engagements and does Q&As on social media platforms like Facebook and Snapchat to challenge the stigmatisation of HIV patients.
