AIDS, get the facts, 1986

The Pharmacists Planning Service (PPS) founded National Condom Week in 1978, three years before AIDS become a major public health concern. Condom Week was an example of a positive strategy used to prevent the spread of sexually transmitted diseases, but this PPS poster from 1986 missed the opportunity to educate, instead using fear of death as their motivating message.
