    All posters come from the AIDS Education Posters Collection curated by the University of Rochester. The school has collected over 6,200 posters, which "document document efforts to educate and inform the people of over 100 countries in over 60 languages, from 1982 to the present." The collection was originally launched last year, during the 30th anniversary of the identification of HIV/AIDS.
