2021 ANNUAL REPORT

2021 was, once again, a year of many challenges for APHL members and staff. But as we continue to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, APHL took some important steps to start looking forward, by approving and implementing a new strategic map for 2021-2023. Its main goal? To codify the association’s goals and objectives under a key message: leading public health laboratories into the post-pandemic era.

We are grateful for the continuing support of our members and federal partners—including but not limited to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the US Food and Drug Administration, the Health Resources and Services Administration and the US Environmental Protection Agency–and all of our public and private collaborators.
