Does your friend have doubt or is he surely hiv +, cause it makes a significant change in how this dilemma is going to be dealt with. There are vctc (voluntary counselling and testing centers), which give good advice on these issues. If he is positive, injustice should not be done on another life, by begetting a child, since hiv virus is transmitted via semen. Anyway the counselors in vctc can help your friend!
