The Zika virus can result in potentially life-threathening symptoms and this billboard is aimed at ensuring that the virus does not spread among individuals.

It is mosquitoes that transmit this virus originally, but it can also be spread in other ways that include physical contact with blood or bodily fluids -- a fact that occurs during unprotected sex. When cases of the Zika virus were found popping up in South Florida, the Aids Healthcare Foundation revealed a large billboard that features images of condoms that clearly state the importance of using protection in order to reduce the chances of transmitting or becoming infected with the virus. The billboard also features a link that people can visit for further information.

This billboard functions as an eye-catching display while ensuring that people are aware of the potentially dire consequences of not having protected sex.
