Naomi Watts takes an UN ambassador position

Oscar award nominee and renowned Hollywood actress Naomi Watts has been appointed as the ambassador for UNAIDS, a UN body for global response to the deadly HIV/AIDS. Watts who joined the United Nations-led fight against AIDS, after a five-day visit to Zambia, said she could "no longer stand and watch people die" and urged people to join the battle against the pandemic. "I urge people all over the world to join this effort because I, too, am learning that there is a role for each and every one of us," she remarked after her appointment as ambassador for UNAIDS, an umbrella organisation of the UN for fighting the AIDS, especially in Africa where it has known to destroy societies. The United Nations has been using high-profile figures in politics, sports, entertainment industry and other fields to place focus on its various programmes. [HST]
