The wife of football superstar David Beckham, Victoria Beckham, who is a former member of the British all-female pop group, Spice Girls, is set to visit Ghana.
Posh Spice as she is affectionately known, would be in Ghana for a number of HIV/AIDS related activities courtesy of UNAID Ghana. Mr Girmay Haile, UNAIDS Ghana Country Director made the announcement recently at the Television Awards Ghana.
Victoria Beckham was appointed UNAIDS International Goodwill Ambassador in September 2014 to support the UNAIDS vision of an AIDS-free generation. She will raise awareness in support of the UNAIDS-led Global Plan towards the elimination of new HIV infections among children by 2015 and keeping their mothers alive and will speak out for young women and girls affected by the epidemic.
Victoria Beckham has been engaged in humanitarian issues for many years and has a long-standing interest in the AIDS response. She has been a patron of the Elton JohnAIDS Foundation for more than a decade and hopes her role with UNAIDS will allow her to reach a greater audience with important messages.
