The overarching goal of these initiatives is to support national tiered laboratory services that meet international standards of best practices and are capable of accurately detecting and characterizing pathogens of high impact and concern in support of evidence-based public health decision-making. A well-functioning national public health laboratory (NPHL) system, prepared to respond to global health security threats, is dependent on and supported by a network of laboratories (both public and private, including clinical, public health, veterinary, food safety, and environmental laboratories), that serve public health functions and are fully integrated with the overall national health care and surveillance systems. Together, these systems should be inter-connected through shared information, communication and referral linkages to contribute to conducting the full range of quality-controlled laboratory services necessary to detect, differentiate, report, and characterize new threat events in any part of the country in a safety-minded and secured environment.
