The SC Campaign has released a new publication titled “Lessons Learned: Promoting Access to Condoms and Contraception.”  This publication reveals the effectiveness of incorporating health clinics in two and four year campuses to attract older youth.  The model, called Promoting Access to Condoms and Contraception (PACC), increased the number of 18-19 year olds who participated in public health clinics by 35% over three years.  The local health clinics promoted their services and provided information about sexual health on college campuses.  As a result, there was a 28% increase in knowledge of where to get information on effective methods of contraception and/or birth control.  The clinics also implemented extended or flexible hours for teen patients and offered sliding scale fees.  The 18-19 year old birth rate has decreased by 24% since the project’s inception.
