🎶 Fighting Sexually Transmitted Infections by Moonlight

Japan’s Ministry of Health is enlisting SAILOR MOON to help contain the spread of chlamydia, syphilis and HIV/AIDS, among other STIs:

In recent years, sexually transmitted infection cases have spiked in Japan. During the 1990s, Sankei News reports that the number never got over a thousand, but as of this October, there were 3284 people with reported STIs.

The poster campaign features Sailor Moon and a reworked version of her original “On behalf of the moon, I will punish you!” catchphrase. Instead, the STI poster reads, “If you don’t get checked out, I will punish you!” (English version of the catchphrase is slightly different.) According to Sankei, the campaign is aimed at young women in their teens, ’20s and ’30s, but it’s also a good reminder for all. [Images: Sankei News]
