  • Description:
    "In 2000, the Association of Public Health Laboratories (APHL) developed a white paper entitled Core Functions and Capabilities of State Public Health Laboratories. The 11 core functions of state public health laboratories were subsequently published in Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report in 2002. A report that followed several years later demonstrated how state public health laboratories, through their core functions, support the 10 essential public health services. Since 2002, it has become clear that a broader, inclusive State Public Health (SPH) Laboratory System is more effective in assuring that the core functions are fulfilled. Within the last decade, work has been done in measuring the laboratory infrastructure in support of the essential public health services, creating performance standards for public health entities, identifying public health workforce needs and addressing quality systems as they apply to public health laboratory services. As we move into the 21st century, these 11 core functions of state public health laboratories remain unchanged. However, what has emerged is the realization that laboratory services in support of public health are dependent upon synergistic and effective interactions among many different partners at the state and national level. This revision of the Core Functions of State Public Health Laboratories more clearly defines the responsibilities of the State Public Health Laboratory (SPHL) within the SPH Laboratory System."- p. 1-2
