A key principle of public health is to be prepared for any eventuality, including the threat of a pandemic. State and territorial health departments are critical pieces of public health emergency response, and ASTHO provides the technical assistance public health agencies need to maintain and update protocols for responding to public health emergencies.

With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, public health agencies across the nation have been put through their paces. ASTHO has provided support for these agencies through our products.
