If You Get the AIDS Virus Now

Description:
The Centers for Disease Control established one of the first government services to respond to the public's questions about HIV/AIDS with the National AIDS Hotline in 1983, but the CDC did not establish a comprehensive educational campaign until 1989, due in part to the halting response of government officials to the AIDS epidemic. This poster was designed to appeal to teenagers and their parents with AIDS-related information, demonstrating a further move beyond earlier stigmatization of at-risk groups. It addresses misconceptions about AIDS by identifying with a unique set of age-related priorities and experiences. The image of the shadowed driver's license appeals to teenage sensibilities, while the message in the text suggests that teens are specifically at risk.
