HIV/AIDS awareness is a big issue in India, although it looks like it’s still a taboo subject over there. Ralph Fiennes did his best in helping educate people in rural India about the illness, though. As a UNICEF ambassador, he spent five days in the rural areas of Maharashtra and saw for himself how the disease has affected families.

Sharing his experience, Fiennes said, “I spent the past week here in India getting a sense of the reality of HIV and AIDS in people’s lives. Fathers and mothers are dying, leaving children with no support. Stigma and discrimination is ruining the family lives. There is an urgent need for education, information, and increased awareness of HIV and AIDS. The response needs to be now. We cannot afford to become fatigued”.

Indian actress Sharmila Tagore, who has been a UNICEF ambassador since 2005, also participated in this campaign, as well as actor Amitabh Bachchan. It’s a relief to finally hear that there are Indian actors committed to the cause. I wonder if Mira Nair invited them to work on her AIDS awareness short film.
