Poster relating to venereal disease, London, England, c. 1970-1980

Gonorrhoea is a bacterial infection that can lead to sterility if untreated. Symptoms vary from person to person and include lower abdominal pain, discharge and nausea. Some people have few or no symptoms and are therefore at risk of passing on the disease unawares. The Health Education Council released this poster to educate the public about gonorrhoea. The poster highlights how widespread it was and that it can only be caught through sexual activity, not by sharing toilet seats or kissing. Venereal disease described any disease spread through sexual contact. Venereal diseases are now referred to as STIs (sexually transmitted infections).
