Getting the message across: historical public health campaigns
To mark WHO's 60th anniversary, WHO Press published a book – titled "Getting the message across: public health campaigns (1948–2008)" – about health communications campaigns through posters over the past six decades.
Media campaigns are one way for WHO and other health organizations to communicate important public health messages to the target audiences. The evolution of public health poster design reflects diversity in local cultures, advertising trends, government regulations and health priorities.
Some examples of posters from the book
Country/region: The Americas
Topic: Maternal and child health
