The APC Program provides free public health preparedness resources that can be easily implemented by any local health department (LHD), as they are created by LHDs, for LHDs. The products are easily adaptable, and have been tested in real world environments by health departments. APC products are ideal in this time of increasing budget pressures, building capacity while saving LHDs time, resources, and money.
