I remember the AIDS and child-planning ads on TV from when I was a kid in India. They were graphic enough to attract the adults' attention yet innocent enough for kids not to realize what they were talking about. The "Use Condoms" ads on TV and on bilboards on way to school were so pervasive that I thought it was something you ingest! . The ad I remember the most talked about how HIV doesn't spread (toilet seats, utensils, shaking hands) and how it does (exchange of bodily fluids), and the aim was both to inform people on how it spreads and to reduce stigma on people who already have it. That's pretty progressive in my opinion.
