The Centre for Australian Military and Veterans’ Health (CAMVH) conducts research on deployment health surveillance, occupational health and safety and mental health and examines e-health capabilities for military and veteran health issues.

We also conduct Think Tanks and other engagement activities that provide opportunities for evidence-based input into military and veteran health issues.
