Bureau of Disease Control

By law, DHEC is mandated "to investigate the reported causes of communicable or epidemic disease and to enforce or prescribe such preventive measures as may be needed to suppress or prevent the spread of such diseases." The program's major activity involves HIV, other STDs, TB, protection from measles, polio and other vaccine-preventable diseases and outbreaks from other communicable diseases. Because all South Carolinians may be subject to communicable disease, we cannot abdicate our responsibility to monitor and control communicable diseases.

South Carolina 2-1-1

Every hour of every day, someone in South Carolina needs essential services-from finding substance abuse assistance, getting the latest information in a crisis, to securing adequate care for a child or an aging parent. Faced with a huge number of public and private agencies, help lines, and phone numbers, people often don't know where to turn or how to get through ‘the maze’. In many cases, people end up going without these necessary and readily available services because they do not know where to start. SC 2-1-1 will provide South Carolinians with information about and referrals to services throughout the State for every day needs and in times of crisis.
