France’s first lady Carla Bruni has vowed to speak up more for AIDS sufferers following a visit to Africa earlier this year.

The singer made a trip to Burkina Faso in West Africa in February, and was traumatized by what she saw.

“The fact is that even though treatment is now available, AIDS/HIV is so stigmatized that women are afraid to get help,” said the spokeswoman for the Global Fund. “What I can’t stand is that people can be treated, mothers can protect their children from AIDS, but they are too scared of the disease – and the fear of the disease is what I can fight.”

She hopes to use her position to fight fear of the disease.
