Partners & Resources
The Division of Injury and Violence Prevention has partnered with state and local level organizations to develop South Carolina Injury Free Alliance (SCIFA) to advocate, market, and promote injury and violence prevention programs and injury surveillance operations. SCIFA recently developed a comprehensive injury prevention state plan to outline current and proposed prevention strategies and activities that address major injury and violence issues.
An effective injury prevention occurs through partnerships and collaborations with state and local agencies and organizations. The Division focuses on preventing and reducing the occurrence of injuries and disabilities to the citizen’s of the state. In addition to the Child Passenger Safety Program, the Residential Fire Injury Prevention Program and the Disabilities and Health Project, the Division serves as a resource and provides guidance to other programs and community organizations regarding the development of injury prevention activities and initiatives. Following is a list of technical resources provided and a list of the agencies and partners the Division collaborates with.
