  1. There is more need to aware the sindh people particulrly in rural areas where sodomy is fashioning last long and may be there were some HIV or AIDS petients but due to lack of knowledge or reluctant to be reported but if any government organization or NGO carried out a survay I beleive a lot of cases found existant.
