A Good AIDS Ad in Swaziland

Some readers of my Outlook piece in today's Washington Post about the AIDS problem in D.C. are asking what a good AIDS billboard would look like. Well, I thought this one from Swaziland was on point entirely. It will seem a bit preachy to some people, but it deals directly with the problem that accelerates the spread of HIV sexually. Sadly the far more prevalent billboards pushing condoms have been around so long, I'm not sure people see them any more. The small tag line at the bottom of this one is: "Casual sex is dangerous. HIV kills."
And below I'm re-posting a nice television ad from Mozambique. And here is a radio interview I did Sunday morning on WTOP radio in Washington.
