Ashley Judd to Visit Jaipur for HIV Cause

Jaipur: Hollywood actress Ashley Judd will be here on a three-day visit to see an NGO's activities in the areas of HIV/AIDS prevention and maternal and child health.//

The star of such thrillers as "Kiss the Girls", "Double Jeopardy" and "High Crimes" will be visiting the Rajasthan capital as part of an initiative by PSI/India.

Ashley is a board member of PSI (earlier known as Population Services International) and is the global ambassador for YouthAIDS, an education and prevention initiative of PSI. A not-for-profit organisation, PSI/India works in the areas of health and women's empowerment.

Ashley will be here March 22-25 and during this period, besides going to field areas, will also meet Rajasthan's Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje.

She will also travel to Mumbai and Delhi.

Speaking about the forthcoming visit, Tim McLellan, managing director of PSI/India, said in a statement said: "PSI/India is greatly excited about Ashley Judd's visit.

"After several years of effort, and with the support of the government of India and our donor partners, we have been able to run programmes, which have demonstrated impact. As our board member, Ashley Judd is keen to see the success of the various programmes that PSI/India and other partners have implemented."

Ashley will address women's issues that are close to her heart. She will see how families can be empowered to protect themselves against HIV/AIDS and unintended pregnancies. India has 5.1 million HIV/AIDS patients.

PSI/India is an NGO registered in 1980 with a mandate to assist the government in the fields of reproductive health, HIV prevention, and maternal and child health. It harnesses the vitality of the private sector to address the health problems of the low-income and vulnerable populations.
