Featured in the Encouraging Blood Donation gallery.
AIDS as a public health threat first emerged in 1981 and for many years there was considerable public confusion over how the disease spreads. It can be spread through unprotected sex, via contaminated blood products and by sharing needles. This poster aimed at educating people that AIDS can not be spread in swimming pools, by shaking hands or from glasses and cups. It also aimed to encourage people to continue donating blood as a new needle is used for each donor and therefore the transmission of AIDS is impossible.
