Hijra's, Pakistan, and HIV Awareness

It seems clear that the Hijra's of India have a different role and lifestyle than those in Pakistan. Religion probably plays a huge role in those differences (between Muslim and Hinduism). The Hijra's in Pakistan, sadly, seem to be little more than prostitutes. As a result, HIV/AIDS awareness is a major issue.
One person seems to be trying to make the Pakistan Hijras aware of the issue though....
