The “International Goodwill Ambassador” with the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), the former Miss World and Bollywood superstar, Mrs. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is appealing to pregnant women shake off their fears of the HIV/AIDS test.

The 39-year-old Aishwarya has dedicated her role as ambassador to educate women on the issue.

“Though there is no medicine for curing this disease, its medical treatment is possible,” the actress said according to a Star Online report.

“I will help break social barriers and stigmas that are attached with the disease. I will help raise awareness on issues related to stopping new HIV infections in children and advocate for increased access to anti-retroviral treatment,” she said.

Ever since her appointment in September, the Indian icon said her focus would be fighting the transmission of HIV/AIDS from mothers to their babies.

“I strongly believe that every baby should be born free from HIV. And I wish that every woman living with HIV stays healthy and has access to treatment. I promise that with UNAIDS, I will do my utmost to make this happen,” said Rai Bachchan in September.
