Welcome

The Centre for Australian Military and Veterans’ Health (CAMVH) invites you to explore how we are working to better understand and address health issues affecting military personnel, veterans, and their families through:

  • research,

  • military-specific professional development opportunities for health professionals, and

  • Think Tank Forums to provide opportunities for high-level strategic input into military and veteran health issues

CAMVH produces an online newsletter than contains information about current projects and activities and date claimers for upcoming events.
