Update: On June 15, 2012 the senate approved a federal spending bill that provides $1 million dollars to continue a signature Lupus provider education program.
The Consolidated Security, Disaster Assistance, and Continuing Appropriations Act of 2009 (H.R. 2638), signed into law on September 30, 2008 continues funding for the Office of Women's Health for initiatives to improve public awareness of Lupus and conduct education projects on lupus. These efforts help to improve the early diagnosis and treatment of lupus.
In 2007 the LFA collaborated with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office on Women's Health and The Advertising Council to develop the first ever national public advertising campaign on Lupus. The campaign is a three-year, $2.3 million effort to increase public awareness and understanding of Lupus with an emphasis on populations most at risk for developing the disease.
