What Does AC/DC Mean?

AC/DC is an acronym for Access Condoms in Darlington County. 

 

Why Have AC/DC in Darlington County?

According to Darlington County's 2019 data, Darlington County was identified as being the 21st highest in the state for teen pregnancy rates. As a result of the findings in a research report titled Accelerating Progress: A roadmap for achieving further reductions in teen pregnancy, the S.C. Campaign identified four strategies that are needed to reduce teen pregnancies. Providing teen friendly condom access points was one of the four strategies. 

 

Teen pregnancy is an issue that many youth in our community face but is not the only one. Darlington County is ranked 16th in the state for Chlamydia infections and 20th in the state for Gonorrhea infections amongst 15-19 year olds (see Darlington County data for more information). Because we care about the future and health of our youth, we choose to provide resources for them that are easy to find and easy to get.

 

How Can We Prevent this from Happening?

There are several ways to abstain from getting pregnant as a teen and to prevent being infected with STDs, STIs, HIV and AIDS and we have centered in on one of those options. With the guidance of the S.C. Campaign's Accelerating Progress research report, we have established places where you can go to receive FREE condoms, FREE of judgment. That is barbershops, beauty salons, small businesses, and individuals in the community.
