The Association of Public Health Laboratories, dedicated to a healthier world through quality laboratory systems, represents the laboratories which monitor, detect and respond to health threats. Working with a variety of agencies, APHL builds effective laboratory systems which protect the public’s health. APHL’s Newborn Screening and Genetics Program strengthens the role of public health laboratories in genetic testing and designs strategies to address changes in the field of newborn screening (NBS). The program develops and recommends positions statements related to newborn screening and genetics to the association, and provides input to the Newborn Screening Quality Assurance Program on quality control and proficiency testing issues relevant to newborn screening laboratories across the globe.
