We are advancing reproductive health.
Fact Forward, formerly the South Carolina Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy, has been providing effective, evidence-based reproductive health education for over 25 years. Our current areas of focus include:
Preventing Teen Pregnancy
HIV & STI Prevention
What we do
We promote easy access to reproductive healthcare, from counseling to contraceptives. We train and educate people who work with young adults. We partner with a variety of organizations - public, private, school, and community-based - to promote policies and initiatives that improve reproductive health outcomes.
Why It Matters
Children born as a result of an unplanned pregnancy are more likely to experience adverse health and developmental consequences, and teen mothers are more likely to drop out of school and rely on public assistance. Reducing teen pregnancies and STIs in adolescents results in better health outcomes for everyone and a fair chance for everyone to thrive.
