Founded in 1957, the American Association of Avian Pathologists strives to prevent and eliminate the suffering and loss of poultry due to disease, to assure a safe poultry-associated food supply and to develop and use cutting-edge, science-based techniques to meet these goals through the education of current and future scientists.

Allied with the American Veterinary Medical Association, the AAAP provides researchers, veterinarians, technicians, poultry-company owners, industries supporting poultry-production representatives and flock managers with knowledge concerning the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of poultry disease as well as food safety and animal welfare through national and regional scientific meetings, text books, manuals and pamphlets.
