Don’t share, 1988

Sharing needles became widely known as a dangerous practice in public health communities, but with little political will or funding to provide users with clean needles, some organizations chose to stress how to sterilize needles for reuse. This poster communicates a simple and cheap measure that would help prevent the spread of AIDS in intravenous drug user communities.
