Audio slideshow: The Aids message

3,000 posters from around the world, that all try to raise awareness of HIV/Aids, have been digitised by staff at The Wellcome Library in central London.

So, to mark World Aids Day on 1 December, two of the librarians, Julia Nurse and William Schupbach, explain some of the shocking and subtle ways that health campaigners have tried to get their messages across.
