COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Officials say three South Carolina health organizations have been awarded more than $18 million from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for teen pregnancy prevention programs.

The State of Columbia (https://bit.ly/1Cp0Pcr ) reports that the agency made the announcement Tuesday.

The South Carolina Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy, the Mary Black Foundation and The Children’s Council will receive four grants totaling more than $3.7 million annually for the next five years.

The federal agency evaluates and promotes research-proven teen pregnancy prevention programs and coordinates with the department’s efforts related to adolescent health.

The three programs are expected to reach more than 50,000 young people in South Carolina over the five-year period.
