Reproductive Health Awareness Month

Each May, during Reproductive Health Awareness Month (formerly Teen Pregnancy Prevention Month), Fact Forward joins organizations across the country to raise awareness about the need for evidence-based reproductive health education.

While South Carolina teen birth rates have declined by 70% from 1991-2017, our state still has the 15th highest teen birth rate in the United States (2016).

Sponsorships

Fact Forward offers sponsorships to organizations around the state to support awareness and outreach activities during Reproductive Health Awareness Month. Community Sponsorships support innovative events to engage your community by empowering young people to make healthy decisions, providing resources to parents, and/or educating community leaders about the importance of quality evidence-based approaches to teen pregnancy prevention.

If your organization is looking to host an event for Reproductive Health Awareness Month, apply for a sponsorship! Applications are due Friday, February 21 by 5 p.m. Application and budget narrative must be submitted by due date to be considered.
