    The Association of Public Health Laboratories (APHL) works to strengthen laboratories serving the public’s health in the United States and globally. A national nonprofit, the organization represents state and local governmental health laboratories in the US. These members, known as public health laboratories, monitor and detect health threats to protect health and safety.

    Founded over 60 years ago as a forum for state public health laboratory directors, APHL has expanded to encompass laboratories and staff from multiple disciplines, including environmental, agricultural and food safety laboratories. APHL collaborates with laboratory and public health partners to assure effective surveillance, detection and response to health threats. During public health emergencies, APHL operates as a coordinating center for laboratory response. With experience in 31 countries on five continents, APHL is recognized internationally as a leader in laboratory science and practice.

    The first cooperative agreement between the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and APHL began in 1989. The relationship has broadened ever since and now encompasses the range of public health.

    This publication was supported by Cooperative Agreement # U60OE000103 funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Its contents are solely the responsibility of the authors and do not necessarily represent the official views of CDC or the Department of Health and Human Services.
