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.
Fight for more research, better treatments and public awareness for the PH community! Sign PHA's petition urging members of the U.S. Congress to co-sponsor the Pulmonary Hypertension Research and Diagnosis Act, H.R. 3520. We'll share this letter, including your typed name and address, with your Members of Congress to let them know that fighting PH matters to their constituents.

Your elected officials work for you. Meeting with them to share your story is an effective way to gain their support of legislation affecting PH patients. There are several ways to meet with your Members of Congress, including visiting their local office, attending a town hall or inviting your senator or representative to your support group meeting.

We are so close to making PH history! Help us advance the Pulmonary Hypertension Research and Diagnosis Act (H.R. 3520) by inviting your Member of Congress to PHA’s Legislative Briefing on May 5, World PH Day. PHA makes it easy to send a pre-written email to your Member of Congress.
Hundreds of PH patients across the country are having trouble affording their life-saving medication. The Patients' Access to Treatments Act will lower the cost of PH and other specialty-tier medication. Email your Members of Congress about the need for better access to treatment and urge them to co-sponsor this bill.
