APHL-CDC Continue Partnership to Strengthen Public Health Labs Internationally

NIAID Researcher Conducts Infectious Disease StudiesThe Association of Public Health Laboratories (APHL) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are continuing a jointly sponsored cooperative agreement program to help strengthen public health laboratories across the globe.

A national nonprofit, APHL represents state and local governmental public health laboratories monitoring and detecting health threats in the United States.

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. APHL leverages its long history of laboratory safety training to help build local capacity in biosafety and biosecurity with international partners.
