Better safe than sorry, 1980s

While some government-sponsored campaigns purposefully avoided any discussion of sex, this campaign presented a more realistic approach to managing risk. This poster, produced by the Milwaukee AIDS Project in the mid-1980s, offered a bank of information on safe sexual and nonsexual practices that people could utilize to limit their risk of infection or transmitting AIDS to others.
