15 Medical Posters from Global Campaigns Against TB
Tuberculosis infection has been found in human remains as far back as the Neolithic Era. During the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, TB was the leading cause of death in the United States. Dr. Edward Livingston Trudeau promoted and established isolation techniques to fight TB in the 1880s. His efforts established an era of prevention and public education. Since then, many visual campaigns have promoted illustrative posters to fight the diseases spread. All of the posters in this series were downloaded from the History of Medicine (IHM)collections of the History of Medicine Division (HMD) of the U.S National Library of Medicine (NLM). The posters provide an interesting international case-study of the various approaches designers have taken to convey public health information. Vintage Prints on Photistoric.
