HIV and AIDS in Africa: Steps Forward and Continued Challenges: Africana Poster Digitization Project

About the Poster Collection

Figures just released by UNAIDS for 2011 estimate a world-wide population of people living with AIDS as 34 million, 22.9 million of whom live in Africa south of the Sahara.

The poster collection of the Melville J. Herskovits Library of African Studies, Northwestern University, documents the efforts of African governments and private organizations to promote public awareness regarding HIV & AIDS. 

The Herskovits Library has a long-standing commitment to collecting posters because of the important role posters play in many aspects of public communication and because of their wide use throughout the continent.
