PAULINA & TEMUS
Temus and Paulina are a married couple living in Oshakati, in northern Namibia. Temus had been living openly with HIV when he met and married Paulina, who is HIV negative. Their marriage was not easily accepted by Paulina’s family and their community, because of Temus’s HIV status.
The couple would like to have their own biological child and are considering various options. Sperm wash in South Africa is too expensive, while conceiving the natural way would be risky. Their main concern is not to pass the virus on to Paulina and the baby.
