A woman, Suthida Sangsumart, who was diagnosed with AIDS by a doctor from the Suvarnabhumi Hospital in Roi Et province has sued the hospital.
She was diagnosed after her father passed away from the same disease when she was 8 years old.
She is suing the Hospital 15 years later because as it turns out — she is not HIV positive.
She and her lawyer Songkran Achariyasab earlier this week allowed members of the media to watch her latest blood test at the Thai Red Cross Society’s Anonymous Clinic.
She stopped taking anti-retroviral drugs five years ago when she was first pregnant following blood tests from other hospitals at the time and from this year, Suthida was told she doesn’t actually have HIV at all and that neither her husband and children are infected with it.
“I started taking the medicine on HIV disease since then. I had to move to Samut Prakarn province after people in my hometown disliked me because of my father’s cause of death and the doctor’s diagnosis that I had Aids,”
‘I cried alone every night at home. No money could repay what I lost and I would like to tell the doctor.’
