Action star Jackie Chan has joined the United Nations Children's Fund (Unicef) in their campaign to help children living with HIV and AIDS.

The Rush Hour hardman - who has spent years serving as a goodwill ambassador for the organisation - produced a series of 30-second commercials in English and Mandarin aimed at combatting misconceptions surrounding the much-maligned disease.

The children's charity hopes Chan's worldwide fame will further their efforts to fight public ignorance of the affliction.
