Each year, the United States Congress decides how much money to spend on federal programs and government agencies that have a powerful effect on pulmonary hypertension (PH) diagnosis, patients' access to treatments and research toward a cure. The Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA) makes it easy for you to learn about legislation affecting the PH community and to make a difference as a PH advocate.
