poster, 'Don't forget to take one on holiday'. Condom poster advertising safe sex, one of 800 health education posters produced for the Central Council for Health Education (1927-69), Health Education Council (1969-87) and Health Education Authority (1987-2000).

Using condoms is one way to practise safe sex and reduce the risk of catching sexually transmitted infections such as HIV, gonorrhoea, syphilis, and chlamydia. The poster reads “Don’t forget to take one on holiday. Remember, it’s not too late to buy some condoms.” This suggests the poster was put up in airports to remind people to practise safe sex when on holiday.
