As the third-gender community, they often get discrimination from their surroundings. Therefore, they tend to limit their interaction with others, outside their community. Some of them work as sex workers. So, they are vulnerable to be infected with HIV/AIDS. Waria who is living with HIV/AIDS will feel meaningless at the first time. Sometimes, they choose to give up and end their life. However, some of them become HIV/AIDS survivors. Those who have a purpose in their life will be more motivated to continue their life better.
