Title:
AIDS: Get the Facts
(normal size jpg)

(high resolution jpg) High resolution version (5,729,703 Bytes)

Description:
"AIDS: Get the Facts" and "If You've Had Two Sex Partners" represent a common didactic and informative approach to AIDS educational posters that does not use images to supplement text. Their respective content and approach, however, are dramatically different. This poster illustrates a traditional information-based preventive effort that focuses on transmission without providing any explicit information. The viewer is directed to "Get the facts," yet the poster itself only vaguely refers to "a few ways" AIDS can be transmitted, suggesting, "We know what those ways are." The poster proposes, "We can all learn how to prevent AIDS," but fails to begin that process.
NOTE: Slide of original poster image is slightly blurry.
