What is CORHA?

The Council for Outbreak Response: Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAIs) and Antimicrobial-Resistant Pathogens (AR) works to improve practices and policies at the local, state, and national levels for the detection, investigation, control, and prevention of HAI/AR outbreaks across the healthcare continuum.

CORHA is a multidisciplinary collaboration of national associations and federal agencies working together since 2015 to improve methods to detect, investigate, control and prevent HAI/AR outbreaks. Council member representatives bring expertise in healthcare epidemiology and infection prevention, environmental health, public health laboratory activities and HAI/AR reporting and regulation at the local, state and federal levels.
