- Among the more eye-catching and emotionally evocative tuberculosis posters were those designed to raise funds for veterans
who had contracted the disease while serving in the First World War. An annual fundraising campaign backed by a private French
group with support from the French and American governments, the Journee Nationale des Tuberculeux used posters commissioned
by leading artists. This illustration is from French caricaturist Abel Faivre. Faivre became famous for his posters supporting
the French military effort during the war. This image of a weary soldier with a nurse's hands on his soldiers is accompanied
by the powerful message, "Save them."
