Nine Japanese porn stars will have their breasts broadcast live on television – while inviting random fans across Tokyo to participate in the ‘hands on’ experience.

Loosely transcribed as ‘Boob Aid’, the well-known adult movie stars will bare their breasts for charity while the public line-up over a 24 hour period on Saturday.

The adult actresses told local media on Monday they could barely contain their excitement about the ‘Stop! AIDS’ campaign event — which will be televised live — but asked, perhaps somewhat optimistically for the fans to be ‘delicate’.

Burma’s Suu Kyi Named New UN Ambassador

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on November 22, 2012

The United Nations yesterday announced opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi as an ambassador to its program on HIV/AIDS.

Suu Kyi accepted the invitation to head the program during a meeting with UNAIDS executive director Michel Sidibé in the capital Naypyidaw, according to an agency statement.

“It is a great honor to be chosen as a champion for people who live on the fringes of society and struggle every day to maintain their dignity and basic human rights,” Suu Kyi said in the statement.

“I would like to be the voice of the voiceless,” added Suu Kyi, who has previously been named as the agency’s global advocate for zero discrimination.

Sidibé said the Nobel laureate was an appropriate choice for the role.

“From small villages to big cities, from Africa to Asia, people are talking about Aung San Suu Kyi. She is inspirational,” he said in the statement.

Eamonn Murphy, country director for UNAIDS in Myanmar, said he was happy that Suu Kyi had accepted the role.

“She would be the voice of HIV- and AIDS-infected people who have no voices,” he told ucanews.com today in an interview in Yangon.

Asked whether Suu Kyi would be an effective ambassador given her commitments as a lawmaker, Murphy said modern technology would allow her to send strong messages of hope in Mynamar and throughout the world.

Earlier this year Suu Kyi addressed an international conference via video link to express her support for those living with HIV/AIDS, Murphy said. Read the rest of this entry »

MIDDLE EAST: New HIV report turns up some surprises

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on June 30, 2010

IRIN

DUBAI, 30 June 2010 (IRIN) – Statistics on the prevalence of HIV/AIDS in the Middle East are hard to come by but a new study launched on 28 June in the United Arab Emirates has attempted to gather all existing data into one place and add some analysis and action points for policymakers.

“In all previous reports we thought there was no HIV data from this region. But there turned out to be lots of data here,” said Laith Abu Raddad, director of the Biostatistics and Biomathematic Research Core at Weill Cornell Medical College in Qatar and the principal author of the study (not yet available online).

“This report is basically more like a scientific epidemiological study: Getting pieces of data, thousands of data that we managed to collect from every country in the region, putting them together and analysing them to see what they tell us in terms of HIV epidemiology,” he said.

The findings were presented this week at the International Microbicides Conference in Pittsburgh in the US, where 1,000 participants have gathered to discuss the latest developments in the field. Read the rest of this entry »
