Syphilis strikes back : #STDMONTH17 badge 1
Details:
  • Description:
    STD Awareness Month The theme, Syphilis Strikes Back, and the artwork throughout this website was inspired by events during the 1940s and the Work Projects Administration (WPA) posters designed to publicize health issues – including syphilis – in several states and the District of Columbia. This was an era when syphilis’s destruction was at its peak, but it was also a period that ushered in antibiotics and a successful push to halt the disease. Since that time, we’ve also learned a lot of lessons about the importance of understanding things like health equity and reducing stigma among communities and individuals. So while the graphics across the STD Awareness Month website pay homage to the look and feel of the WPA era, they also contain current public health messages seeking to raise awareness, help healthcare providers protect their patients, and empower individuals to take charge of their health.
