AwsHttpClient is a wrapper around HttpClient class of the System.Net.Http library. The wrapper has been added so as to remove System.Net.Http dependencies from the Services and migrate it to a Core level dependecy only. This avoids version clashes when a service and the Core depends on different versions of the System.Net.Http library. This is a Service level utility method
