Beauty queen Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who has been appointed as the International Goodwill Ambassador for UNAIDS, will raise global awareness on protecting children from HIV infection and increasing access to antiretroviral treatment.
But, as for Ash, she won't just be a mere poster girl for the organisation. In fact, she will be taking a crucial step to break the social barriers and stigmas that are attached with AIDS. Aishwarya Rai, who had recently attended a press conference, said, "I dont want to be just a poster girl, dont want to be just part of a platform that will have my face and quotes and voice."
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has been involved in humanitarian issues for years now. And, now she has decided to focus on HIV/AIDS. She further added, "I will initially be like a student, holding the hand of the organisation which will lead me to the real picture on the ground."
