"From Time Immemorial Venereal Disease Rates Have Risen Alarmingly During Wars"

Description

"In World War I the Army's venereal disease rate was the lowest in its history to that time. The all-time low was reached in 1939, after which the trend was upward. "

This poster explains that venereal disease rates increase during war time. A graph showing peaks coinciding with major wars reinforces this point.
