Dear Art Educators,

Some of you might be interested in this collection of AIDS posters.
Site was featured in Scout Report

11. AIDS Posters

The graphic arts have been used persuasively for decades, and in the arena
of public health, there have been a number of images that have stayed in the
public consciousness for years. Recently, the UCLA Louise M. Darling
Biomedical Library created this digital archive of 625 posters from 44
countries, including Australia, Costa Rica, New Zealand, and Poland.
Commenting on the collection, Professor Roger Detels remarked, "The
collection provides a fascinating insight into the many approaches that have
been used to try to modify risk behaviors." Visitors can browse through the
collection at their leisure, and they can do so by looking over a list of
countries or a very detailed subject list. Overall, the collection is well-
thought out and executed, and one that will be of interest to students of
public health, graphic design, and other related fields. [KMG]

Copied from the site:

"The AIDS Poster Collection consists of 625 posters from 44 countries
including Australia, Austria, Canada, China (and Hong Kong), Costa
Rica, France, Germany, India, Japan, Luxembourg, Martinique, the
Netherlands, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Poland, Portugal, Spain,
Switzerland, Tahiti, Uganda, the United Kingdom, and the United
States. The posters were issued by a variety of institutions and
organizations to educate and warn people about AIDS and to offer
advice and information in visual form. Some are more blunt and graphic
than others, and they come in many styles."
