[Correspondence] Transgender health in India and Pakistan

Sam Winter and colleagues (July 23, p 318 and p 390)1,2 reported a much neglected health issue of transgender people, who have been officially recognised as a third gender citizen registration category in Nepal, Pakistan, India, and Bangladesh, since 2010. Locally known as hijras (hijra), this civil recognition is profound for their social rights because it translates into confirmed allocation into government and education quotas. Despite the legal recognition, access to quality health care is alarmingly scarce compared with their cisgender counterparts.
