Salman Ahmad, the popular guitarist and composer of the musical group Junoon, will act as a national spokesperson in the fight against HIV/AIDS, announced the United Nations today. He will be featured in a poster campaign entitled "I care . . . do you?", developed worldwide by the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS). At the global level, the campaign already features Kofi Annan, Danny Glover, Ronaldo and Ricky Martin, and aims to involve men, particularly young men, more fully in the efforts against AIDS.
