The Art of the Public Health Campaign

While we've all got public health campaigns on the brain, we might as well enjoy the aesthetics of it all. The University of Kansas Medical Center hosts an online gallery of vintage Chinese public health posters with translations. Stay healthy!

Chinese Public Health Poster on Diptheria

 Translation:

Terrible disease of the diphtheria

Send patients to the hospital as soon as possible

Take inoculation before getting infection

Chinese Public Health Poster on Meningitis

Translation:

Terrible disease of meningitis

See the doctor immediately when having severe headache and fever

Stay away from crowds
