These AIDS-related educational materials were published by the Gay Men's Health Crisis organization, the long running group with a mission to help eradicate AIDS and improve the lives of those affected by it. Founded in 1982 and now known simply as “GMHC”, they spread their life-saving messages through informative and nonjudgmental publications such as those offered here. There's an attractive brochure sponsored by the United Colors of Benetton, and one entitled “10 Minutes That Can Change Your Life.” Other pamphlets discuss taking “The Test,” and alerting women that they too are at risk. Two vibrantly illustrated fliers promoted the 1992 and 1998 AIDS Walks, the proceeds of which would benefit GMHC and help them pursue their mission.
One of the brochures located on OCLC, the rest of the items do not appear.
A fine group of AIDS educational materials from an organization that still addresses AIDS issues through education, care, and advocacy. Very good +. Item #3375
