Description:
In 1990, the Commonwealth Department of Community Services and Health for Aboriginal Health Workers of Australia created this poster as part of a campaign to dispel misconceptions about HIV/AIDS. The appearance of the characters and their broken English are designed to appeal to a specific audience and culture: Aborigines. To overcome cultural barriers, posters like these frequently avoided explicit reference to sexual taboos such as the use of condoms. In this case, the female character suggests that AIDS education has challenged the predominant association of condoms with embarrassment.
