ACHA Statement on the Proposed Budget of the United States Government, Fiscal Year 2018

The Administration’s budget proposal for 2018 gravely impacts our nation’s ability to combat health outbreaks, pioneer medical research breakthroughs, and help our neediest college students fulfill their higher education goals.


The proposed cuts to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the National Institutes of Health, and federal student aid programs threaten to compromise campus health and student success. ACHA looks to Congress to finalize a budget with funding levels that safeguard our nation’s higher education and public health communities and that places the needs of our nation’s 20 million college students as a priority.


Revised TB Screening Guidelines Available

  • Information on Directly Observed Therapy (DOT) has been added.
