Who better to talk to you about AIDS awareness...

... than barbers?

You can't quite walk away when they start talking to you about it, after all. The stand-out sentence in the report linked to above:
Eleven thousand packets of condoms have been distributed by the 85 barbers in the past six months in Lajpat Nagar alone.
It's a relief that no one's yet protested the distribution of condoms on moral grounds.
