Cartoon drawings are accompanied by the message: 'VD is dangerous. Don't pass it on'. This fold-out leaflet educated the public about the dangers of venereal disease (VD). VD described any disease spread through sexual contact. Such diseases are now called STIs (sexually transmitted infections). They are mainly spread through unprotected sex. Some of the commonest sexually transmitted diseases such as gonorrhoea and syphilis are effectively treated with antibiotics.
