Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is the Goodwill Ambassador of UNAIDS; the beautiful actress recently attended an event organised to mark World AIDS Day and talked about sex education in schools and HIV/AIDS in order to eliminate the social stigma that comes with the disease. And we must say that the hot actress was looking gorgeous in 'Red'.
At the event, Aishwarya stressed upon the importance of sex education, she said, "Sex education is very important. We have all had it. It is important to have sex education in schools. In urban culture a lot of schools have it. I would love to find out if it it is happening across the board all over the nation."

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan also talked about the life-threatening disease, she told IANS, "As long as we keep the communication (on HIV/ AIDS) going, people will remain informed and educated. The perceived social stigma should definitely be pulled down. That will be the day when the issues are more practically discussed and that's when it becomes more effective.''
''You actually address it as something that needs attention and what's the action to follow. You have concerns of the social stigma of feeling gagged to actually communicate, that is what we're constantly working towards. Once those barriers disappear, the work becomes more effective," the stunning actress said.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan further added, "Among the many days such as festivals, the World AIDS Day is equally important, because you're drawing attention to something that is a part of humanity, part of our reality, which exists in the world and affects a lot of people. It is a current affair and once it has struck mankind it'll forever remain a current affair.''
