    • Description:
      APHL fielded the twelfth annual All-Hazards Laboratory Preparedness Survey to assess public health laboratories’ capability

      and capacity to respond to biological, chemical, radiological and other threats, such as pandemic influenza. Administered

      in the fall of 2020, the survey covered a 12-month period from July 1, 2019 to June 30, 2020 representing the US Centers

      for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Public Health Emergency Preparedness (PHEP) Cooperative Agreement Fiscal Year

      2019, also known as Budget Period 1. APHL received a 98% (53/54 public health laboratories) response rate from public

      health laboratories in 50 states, Puerto Rico, the District of Columbia, Los Angeles and New York City.

      health preparedness and response.
