AIDS awareness campaign gets a shot in the arm
Ashley Judd, acclaimed Hollywood actress has just wound up an extensive AIDS awareness campaign that has taken her along a trail less traveled. Clad in a simple cotton sari she walked the streets in Kamathipura in Mumbai interacting with commercial sex workers, 50% of whom are HIV positive. In Dharavi, Asia’s largest slum, she talked to children for whom the streets are their home and who have no idea about HIV or their own vulnerabilities. From Mumbai, which is the epicenter of the AIDS virus in India, she has traveled to Delhi and Rajasthan.
