American wartime campaign posters warning soldiers against STDs

"You can not win if you become infected with VD"

This poster was created for the Publicity Department of the Public Information Committee of the United States.

By the end of the First World War, more than 10 000 American soldiers were treated, but not from injuries received on the battlefield, but from sexually transmitted infections. At that time, the stay in the hospital for the treatment of venereal disease (VD) ranged from 50 to 60 days, which significantly undermined the combat capability of the units and wasted precious time. The French military command was in a very difficult position. They had to cope with this problem, without going beyond the bounds of decency.

The French government considered the discovery, maisons de tolrance, brothels, where women were examined (although not always thorough) for the disease. The Council of the British Army expressed fears that by imposing a ban on visiting these institutions, they would offend the feelings of the French. The United States did not experience such remorse and banned visiting brothels for the military. British and American military leaders imposed severe and severe penalties for sexual abuse of the rules. By the end of the war, they also produced posters that reminded soldiers of the danger of a venereal disease.

American wartime campaign posters warning soldiers against STDs

A poster created by WPA Illinois, somewhere between 1936 and 1940 for years.

Early posters appeal to soldier patriotism and compare sexually transmitted diseases with yellow fever and plague. In the years following World War I, syphilis and gonorrhea were an acute public health problem in the United States. Penicillin did not have wide access in the army until the 1943 year, and the civilian population received the right to use only in the 1945 year.

The Public Works Administration (WPA), within the framework of the Federal Art Project, produced posters for local and state health departments, many of which called for men and women to be tested and portrayed venereal diseases as a threat to families and negatively affecting productivity.

A poster from World War II warned soldiers against women — even “clean ones.”

With the outbreak of World War II, the military again had to worry about the problem of sexually transmitted diseases at the front. American posters were issued both by the army and fleetas well as a public health service. Certain popular editions have been translated into French, Italian and Spanish. As during the First World War, some 1940s posters infected with a venereal disease were equated with helping the enemy. Others portrayed women as lying, disgusting seducers.

World War II poster from the Air Force announces unwary soldiers as saboteurs.

It is difficult to say what impact these graphic warnings have had for the prevention of disease. But they probably helped to make the sensitive issue of sexually transmitted diseases more open for discussion in society.

The poster, released between 1918 and 1920 for years, was intended for soldiers returning from World War I.

WPA poster, issue in 1936 or 1937 year. Arsenic, bismuth, and mercury were used as a treatment until penicillin became widely available in 1940's.

The poster 1943 of the year from the US Navy and the Office of Military Information clearly shows the “source” of the sexually transmitted disease - a woman.

1940's poster for the US Public Health Service underlines high levels of syphilis infection.

In the Soviet period, the topic of the spread of venereal diseases among veterans was hushed up for the sake of maintaining the bright image of the liberator warrior. And yet, already in 1951, the 35-hard work “The Experience of Soviet Medicine in the Great Patriotic War 1941-1945. T.27: Skin and sexually transmitted diseases (prevention and treatment). "

The book does not indicate the data, how often the Red Army soldiers became victims of “love” adventures. Named only general data. The authors noted that, although these diseases were present in the Soviet troops, they were much rarer than those of the Germans or the Americans.

The fact that a whole volume of the publication was devoted to the problem says that the Red Army men were exposed to venereal diseases not less often than the allies and the Germans.
The fact that the problem was significant, displays the document of the 3-th Shock Army headquarters from 27.03.1945.
Army commander ordered:
1. Investigate all cases of diseases.
2. Require the immediate execution of an order to evict the civilian population.
3.All of all cases of venereal diseases brought to justice as criminals who tried to avoid participation in the battles ...

    Prostitution and fornication is a powerful, destructive weapon of moral protection, of every person, every person, nation, nation in general, its armed forces in particular.
    In the Old Testament, in the book of Numbers there is a narrative of the seer and diviner Balaam and king Balak.
    Balak, the king of Moab who came to the people of Israel by war, wanted to have victory over the people of Israel and thought that if the soothsayer curses the people of Israel, then his victory is guaranteed.
    Although King Balaak offered Balaam a lot of money for cursing the people of God, Balaam could not curse him because when he began to search for God, God forbade him to curse the people of Israel and Balaam, repeating the words of God, the blessing on the people of Israel was spoken, this story can be found in Numbers 22-24.
    But the whole point is that Balaam did great harm to Israel anyway, he could not curse the people of Israel but gave Valak very important advice on how to defeat the people of Israel.
    Balaam taught Balak how to defeat Israel by making Israel fall into sin, and then God's favor and protection will depart from Israel and Israel can be defeated. And Balak followed the advice of Balaam and sent prostitutes to the location of the people of Israel, who seduced men from the people of Israel forcing them to fornication and still persuaded them to worship pagan gods i.e. made them idolaters.
    Since then, this practice of destroying spiritual and moral protection has become even more sophisticated.
    Fornication and idolatry is what they have tried and are still trying to defeat the people of Israel.
    Russia, its people, its Army, also fully experience the destructive power of debauchery and worship of a monetary idol on themselves.
    We see at the root of the “freedom and democracy” thrown to us by the Satanists, dear.

    Ah yes the author what a fellow! In conclusion of the article!
    The fact that a whole volume of the publication was devoted to the problem suggests that the Red Army suffered no less sexually transmitted diseases than the Allies and Germans

    I was not too lazy to get a three-volume book of the Big Medical Encyclopedia, I got the terrible number of pages with materials about sexually transmitted diseases. Each 40 page is about venous diseases or about their prevention. So, what do we have on this basis, 2,5% of patients? Ahrenet system of conclusions, it’s like the circulation of physics textbooks for grade 8, count the number of electric locomotives! And to give an example of a page with an electric locomotive device.
    Now open volume 27, read the name .... "Skin and sexually transmitted diseases ....... ". That is, according to the author’s logic, the officers and soldiers of the Red Army could get the disease" fungus under the toenails "only by sweating on the garnish pole? And in another way, in the trench - absolutely nothing? !! !
    Conclusion, the article "fat minus".

        The author concludes that mass infection of the Red Army with venereal diseases is based on the ratio of one volume of Skin and Sexually Transmitted Diseases to 35 volumes of the collection. That is, according to the perverse logic of the author during the Great Patriotic War, every 3 soldiers of the Red Army suffered from venereal diseases. So I ask the question why not every 6, because the volume examined by the author includes two parts of skin diseases and sexually transmitted diseases! What is common between the instruction of the iron and the engine!

            I answer! The author, in principle, did not bother with this question, but wrote the following ...

            Moreover, you agreed with me that Volume 17, contrary to the opinion of the Author, contains, in addition to the section on sexually transmitted diseases, an equally voluminous section of skin diseases. So in our case it’s already part of the volume (roughly half)!
            Trying to comprehend the logic of the Author, I turned to mathematics.
            Half a man for 35 in all, or 1 patient for 70 soldiers. The significance of the numbers bothered me? Then, from the army, I subtracted all conditionally early and late, women military personnel, LBT community, bestiality, necrophiles and got a cool number 3 !!! If the menagerie is not taken into account, it turns out to be worthless 6 !!! But three out of a hundred is cooler, one can even be proud of it if you recall the post-mortem Germans of the Germans!

              But, you have problems with logic. The word "skin" letters is 2 (two) times less than the word "venereal". So syphilitics in the Red Army were 2 (two) times more than scabies. Conclusion: your calculations ftopku.)

              Nobody denies the problem! But to equate it with semi-legal brothels of the Allies, the language does not turn. Moreover, the situation with venous diseases in WWI and the Great Patriotic War has various causes and conditions. Moreover, Bulgakov, Tolstoy and even Gaidar have this. The conditions of medicine and personal hygiene 1914-1920 are many times lower than after 20 years. So referring to the Red Army of the sample of 20 years of the last century, this is a kind of cunning and distortion of facts.

    Each army had its own specific problems. The Americans feared venereal diseases, while the Red Army was concerned about gastrointestinal diseases and believed that they were more dangerous than others. Thanks to the efforts of specialists, it was possible to avoid serious epidemics during the Second World War, both in the army and among the civilian population. There were some cases, but quickly stopped.

    The author made two mistakes.
    First one. He raised a topic for the perception of which many are not ready.
    The second one. Given the specifics of the topic, if it was already raised, the article should be based on extensive factual material, and not on the empirical reasoning and syllogisms of the author. Without this, the article is now the "historical sketch."
    If you approach objectively, then the problem has always occurred in all armies, without exception.
    If there wasn’t such a problem, then there wouldn’t be a message from Metropolitan Makarios (contemporary of Ivan the Terrible) to the soldiers who took Kazan - “not to touch in the relations with the prodigal wives, from whom an unclean disease occurs”, and in 1664 a special code on the fight against sexually transmitted diseases in the army.

    And this is a graph from Comrade’s report. Voroshilov at the IV All-Union Congress of Soviets of the USSR - "On the defense of the country and the state of the workers 'and peasants' Red Army."
    So the question was the place to be. Otherwise, he would not have been considered at such events. And he had to decide. To all armies.

    Dear author, what did the doctors of the Red Army use to treat sexually transmitted diseases?
    You did not say a word about this in the article!
    But once I came across the memory of a veteran -
    it said that venzaraznyh soldiers injected a certain dose of skya intramuscularly! Body temperature increased to 40-40,5. At the same time, the patient was forced to move actively and even forced into this by various physical influences! At this body temperature, the MOL DIED SPIROCHETE and other venereal nasty things!

Moreover, even mentioning in his opuses the multivolume “Experience of Soviet medicine in the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945.

              CHAPTER 111
              Patriotic War
              Gonorrhea among other sexually transmitted diseases had in the past
              war of the XIX and early XX centuries, a significant spread in the warring \
              armies, which for a relatively long time incapacitated pain- \ V
              the total number of fighters. Treatment of patients with gonorrhea before the Great Patriotic War t
              war, represented significant difficulties, since, 1
              in addition to its duration, it was accompanied by a large number of ^ /
              complications and frequent relapses.
              Just before the Great Patriotic War, the principles of
              the cost of gonorrhea has changed: previous methods, mostly local
              tera designed to create adverse conditions for multiply-
              niya gonococcus, came in clear contradiction with the recognition of gonorrhea ob-
              general disease (Fronstein). Gonorrhea remained one of the few
              infections to which the successes of a specific
              chemical and biological therapy. Specific vaccines could not
              radically solve this problem.
              A new stage in the treatment of gonorrhea began with the introduction of sulfane:
              The Great Patriotic War began during the study of methods ^,
              sulfanilamide therapy. During the Great Patriotic War appeared-, '
              moose even more powerful specific treatment for gonorrhea - penalties ^ '
              New treatments for gonorrhea with sulfonamides and penicillin
              could not but fundamentally change the tactics and organization of treatment
              In order to improve the treatment of gonorrhea during World War II
              war events were held in two directions: 1) approach
              treatment of gonorrhea to the active parts to reduce the time before the start
              treatment and prevent complications; 2) improving treatment methods so that
              reduce treatment time, reduce labor losses and increase reliability
              cure. Conventional pre-war methods were clearly in this respect
              insolvent. To study the formulation of treatment for gonorrhea in the army
              during the Great Patriotic War and the success achieved in accelerating
              treatment by introducing new methods and improving the organization of treatment
              In this work, we used published literature
              chat materials and materials of scientific conferences. The basis of common
              statistical development was laid material in-depth development,
              case histories of patients treated for gonorrhea in hospitals.


              Sulfanilamide preparations were used. In the treatment of 83,3%
              all patients with urethritis; 16,7% of patients received mostly only

              the action of sulfonamides is still far from being specified. Their main action is
              bacteriostatic, however, drugs such as sulfidine, sulfazole
              and sulfadiazine in high concentrations can apparently give
              and bactericidal effect.

              blood. Concentration is determined by a single dose, the intervals between
              drug methods, method of administration (absorption when used
              through the mouth) and the rate of excretion from the body. Action efficiency
              action depends on the activity of this sulfanilamide preparation and
              degrees of sulfonamide resistance of gonococcus strains. Height
              sulfanilamide mirror in the blood itself does not yet determine

              sulfanilamide therapy. It has been suggested that it has worsened
              quality of factory products. During the war, negative results
              tats with sulfanilamidotherapy gonorrhea began to grow rapidly, which
              They began to explain already sulfonamide resistance. They made up
              1/1 1942 in France 25,8%, in Switzerland -21,0%, in Sweden -15,0%,
              and by the beginning of 1944 in France — 54,4%, in Germany — 43,0%, in Switzerland'— •
              44,5%, in Sweden - 80,0%, in southern Italy - 75,0% of those treated

              the growth of sulfonamide resistance, it was uneven in different
              places, and in individual foci gave different indicators.
              "I. M. Porudominsky, having studied the materials of institutes, clinics and
              dispensaries, noted among the civilian population a motley character
              sulfonamide resistance. While a number of medical institutions
              continued in 1943 and 1944 to note the high efficiency of sulfanyl-
              midotherapy, other institutions indicated 25,0-30,0% negative
              results. A. D. Schekhter noted an increase in sulfonamide resistance.
              from 9,0% in1943 to 30,0% in 1944. In 1944, the same phenomenon was noted.
              elk in the reports of other front-line specialists and associated with the movement
              troops on the territory liberated from occupation, and later on
              territories of capitalist countries. The average percentage of sulfonamides
              resistance, according to the development of case histories, amounted to 35,9.
              The phenomenon of sulfonamide resistance was inherently
              Teru new, unusual phenomenon. Drug resistance was
              known before, in particular in the field of chemotherapy. In the laboratory
              conditions managed to obtain highly resistant strains of various
              microorganisms. However, for the first time in the treatment of gonorrhea with sulfanilam-
              There has been a massive decline in therapeutic efficacy.
              replaceable drugs.
              The study of the phenomenon showed that resistance is due to
              various reasons. The more stable of them include features.
              of the macroorganism itself (the presence of paraurethral passages, features
              glandular apparatus of the urethra, the state of the reticuloendothelial
              systems, etc.).
              Among sulfonamide-resistant patients, a significant
              a number with complications mainly prostatitis, as well as vesic-
              litas, littreits, periurethritis and strictures. Relatively
              little hindered the effect of sulfanilamides opididymitis.
              The resistance mechanism in these cases is not only associated with
              lower blood circulation conditions, but mainly with an increased image of
              in complicated foci of paraaminobenzoic acid, which suppresses
              the effect of sulfonamides; its antisulfanilamide effect develops
              in relation to: 1 part of acid to 20-30 parts of sulfonamides; her pour-
              whose, thus, favors the vital activity of microorganisms.
              At least two thirds of cases of sulfonamide resistance
              associated with the resistance of gonococcal strains.

                TREATMENT OF MOLOK MG Release of sulfonamide-resistant
                Injection of milk was during the Great Patriotic War
                the most common method in both complicated and uncomplicated
                In cases of gonorrhea.
                Intramuscular injections of milk were used in 52,2% of cases,
                including 1,6% in combination with a vaccine and 0,2% with collargol.
                The success of the method was facilitated by the full opportunity to always have
                fresh material in the form of natural cow’s milk, which is usually
                and applied after 10 minutes of boiling. In the presence of foci
                Complications It was recommended to start therapy with moderate doses
                (3,0-5,0), and to eliminate resistance to introduce large doses
                (10,0-15,0 - 20,0).
                - M. M. Kuznets, finding an increase in sulfonamide resistance
                in 25,0% of cases, he suggested that all cases of acute gonorrhea be considered
                sulphonamide resistant and subject to combination
                therapy (3-4 injections of milk, sulfonamides, irrigation), which allows
                It was necessary to reduce the duration of treatment to 10 days.
                "B. I. Krasnov used three injections of milk: 10,0, 15,0 ~ and 20,0,
                after which he prescribed 5,0 morphaiylprontalbin for b days; at
                In this method, a positive result was achieved in 63,0% of cases.
                I. D. Korchemny received a positive result from the treatment of milk
                com in 61,0% of patients.
                Many authors have used injections of milk in small and medium
                zakh (from 2,0 to 5,0) with total urethritis and with gonorrhoids
                studies, as well as after the disappearance of gonococci, with subsequent
                residual phenomena in the adnexal organs. ^
                A number of venereologists considered milk therapy not effective enough;
                which led them to combined methods: a combination of milk with vaccine
                Noah, milk with collargol. E. Ya. Temkin, applying a mixture of milk
                with 6% collargol received in 72,8% of cases the cure. Sulfanilamines
                dy — sulfidine and sulfazole — were prescribed at a dose of 18,0. The technique for
                changes: on the 1st day the patient received 3 cm3 of milk and 3 cm3 of 6%
                largol, which were mixed in one syringe, on the 2nd day - 6,0 sul
                fidine 1,0 after 2 hours, on the 3rd day - 5,0 sulfidine, on the 4th day -
                the second injection of 5 cm3 of milk and 5 cm3 of 6% collargol and 4,0 sulfi-
                dyne, on the 5th day — 3,0 sulfidine. Among previously untreated patients, from
                of which 73,0% were obviously sulfastlamidoresistant, 67,6% were
                were treated in 5 days. Leukocytosis averaged 12. In connection with
                the observed infiltrates at the injection site, the concentration of
                largola in some patients was reduced from 6 to 3%.
                EI Korotkikh, using milk with collargol, received in 90,0%
                success cases. Discharge usually stopped on the second day after
                second injection. It should be noted that as a result of attempts to replace
                boiling milk by its pasteurization, single abscesses were observed,
                as well as phlegmon.
                TREATMENT AND PREPARATION According to the development data,
                disease, a method for eliminating sulfonamide resistance by injection
                solutions of skia received in military hospitals quite wide
                distribution and was used in 24,8% of patients, ranking second
                after injecting milk. In the treatment of skin diseases and complicated
                gonorrhea 10 and 20% solutions of skia in oil were used in the USSR for
                long before World War II (G.I. Landa, N.L. Rossyanskiy
                and etc.). A. D. Shekhter reported on the successful results obtained from the use of 40% skia solution in the treatment of streptocid-resistant
                gonorrhea. The study and refinement of the methodology for the treatment of skiomas in the period.
                A.G. Rybnikov and others were engaged in World War II.
                In the treatment of skiomas, the focal reaction is very short
                and is quickly suppressed by the onset of non-sterile immuno-
                theta. This treatment gives the best results in acute forms of gonorrhea.
                While, for example, milk therapy is especially effective in treating
                acute complications of gonorrhea.
                ^ -Treatment of skiomas has a strong effect on leukopoiesis:
                leukocyte retention in the blood rises to 18-000 in 25 mm000 of blood
                and gradually decreases. The positive property of treating skiomas
                is the duration of the temperature reaction (4-5 days), which allows
                limit yourself to one injection. Perhaps oligodynamic
                The effect of essential aromatic oils contained in
                which have long been considered a specific remedy against gonorrhea.
                For the treatment, 10, 20, 40 and 50% skia solutions were used.
                To eliminate resistance, 40 and 50% solution was most often used.
                ramie skya. Best results. Gave 40% Scya solution. Cleared
                ski was dissolved in vegetable oil (olive, peach
                or sesame). Special incremental rectification of the drug as
                showed experience is not required. They were administered 1-1,5 cm3 subperiostally. Counter-
                indications for the treatment of skiomas were kidney and liver diseases,
                active pulmonary tuberculosis, intercurrent acute diseases. Pe-
                In the course of treatment and during the treatment, urine was carefully examined.
                In the first days after injection, the gonorrhoid process is slightly exacerbated ^
                the amount of discharge increases, in latent cases in
                divisions appear gonococci; on the second day, inflammatory
                nyasya subside, discharge decreases and disappears, infiltration decreases
                urethral traction. Body temperature rises gradually, starting from the end
                the first day, and reaches a maximum (38,5—39,5 °) by the end of the 3rd day,
                after which it gradually decreases, reaching the norm on the 5th day of treatment.
                Leukocytosis reaches 3-15 by the 000rd day and, gradually decreasing,
                reaches the norm by the 10-12th day. ROE rises to 18-30 mn
                per hour and remains elevated to 3 weeks. Injection site reaction
                consists in the appearance of quite severe pains, riveting
                patient to bed for 5-7 days and constitute a negative
                side treatment of skiomas. Local swelling with dementia
                tissue, but without hyperemia of the skin, reaches the size of the palm and
                cheses by the 5-8th day. The second negative point is moderate
                renal irritation, manifested in mild albuminuria, from traces,
                protein up to 0,6 ° / 00 (in 10,0-15,0% of patients), sometimes holding up to 7-8 days.
                The time to start taking sulfonamides after injection of skia
                different authors suggested different. L. R. Schneider to establish
                the optimal time to start sulfonamide therapy, used a number
                parallel groups: in the group that started taking crani sulfanilamides
                24 hours, 75,0% of patients were cured; in the group that started taking
                sulfonamides after 48 hours, —92,5%; in the group that started taking
                sulfonamides 72 hours after the injection, 77,5%; thus,,
                the optimal start of sulfonamide therapy was noted during the period of the highest
                a rise in temperature, ROHE and leukocytosis - 48 hours after:
                Most patients were cured with a single injection.
                Skia followed by sulfanilamide therapy.

                That is, milk and ski, along with autohemotherapy and blood transfusion were used to relieve resistance to sulfamides. Then, anyway, a course of treatment with sulfalamides followed.
                The one that does not spread any nonsense on the network. There are so many of her.
