Title

"Blinded by Gonorrhea"

Description

This poster explains how men may transmit gonorrhea to their family and that children can be blinded by the illness. It is part of a larger poster series called "Youth and Life."

"If the mother has gonorrhea, her child may be blinded at birth : Simple medical treatment at time of birth will prevent such blindness : Men who think themselves cured sometimes infect their wives with gonorrhea. Chronic ill-health and inability to have children are often caused by gonorrhea. Many serious operations on married women are due to this disease"
