Actress Gwyneth Paltrow has narrated a short film for United Nations Children's Fund (Unicef) in a bid to save newborn babies from a life with Aids. The Oscar winner offered her voice to the new public service announcement, which was launched online on Wednesday (27Feb08), after her friend, and Hugh Grant's ex, Jemima Khan asked her to take part. Khan is urging world leaders to honour their 2007 promise for AIDS funding that would lead to all pregnant women with HIV given treatment to make certain their babies are born without the disease. Khan tells website People.com, "I asked Gwyneth if she would agree to do the voiceover for the film as she is a mother with a global profile, who I know is a supporter of UNICEF." Paltrow adds, "According to UNICEF, a baby is born with HIV almost every minute of every day somewhere in the world. The virus is passed from mother to child during the birth or pregnancy. "I have just found out that this can be prevented for less than $2, yet very few women in the poorer countries of the world can get the medicine they need to ensure their baby is born free from HIV. "I hope that this new short film will raise awareness and funds about this issue and UNICEF will be able to reach every woman with the vital care and medicines they need."

Gwyneth Paltrow why do you blame the women alone for passing HIV/AIDS to their children. It is also an unwanted gift from husbands to their wives. And the men of this world should keep themselves pure and not indulge in extra-marital sex. Both husbands and wives must keep their promises they so sincerely make on their wedding day. Truth should not be compromised on any account. You are so artificial in this clip. Nothing comes from your heart.
