Additional Information: 

The American Child Heath Association (ACHA), or the Child Hygiene League, was an important children's welfare organization throughout the 1920s and early 1930s. Established in 1923, the organization attempted to ameliorate the dismal health conditions found in many of the nations' larger cities. ACHA projects included the improvement of infant mortality statistics, attempts to improve the safety of the nation's milk supply, campaigns to bring child healthcare to rural areas, and numerous attempts to end child labor. The organization not only succeeded in bringing renewed national attention to child labor, but it also helped spur the development of public health care systems throughout many states.
