Budget Directs Funding to Lyme Disease

Pennsylvania has been labeled “the bull’s eye for Lyme disease” by one public health official.

This year’s 2018-19 state budget addresses many of the state’s critical health needs by directing resources to several important line items, including $2.5 million for Lyme disease.

Efforts will include building a more robust Lyme disease prevention and education program, conducting more well-rounded surveillance through activities like a statewide environmental survey, and improving participation in tick-borne disease surveillance with providers and local health departments. The funding specifically addresses many of the recommendations outlined by the Lyme Disease Task Force, which was created by Act 83 of 2014.

Other health-related funding priorities include increases to support the state’s West Nile Virus and Zika Virus control program; take care of those with intellectual disabilities; and offer evidence-based home visiting services to families affected by the opioid epidemic. Bio-technology research, ALS support services and regional cancer centers also will receive increases in this budget.
