Veterans' Health Week

This year Veterans’ Health Week (VWH) will be held from Saturday 21st to Sunday 29th October and the theme will be Physical Activity. 

The week is an opportunity for veterans, war widows, widowers, current and ex-Australian Defence Force members and their families to improve and maintain the health and wellbeing of themselves and their friends.

DVA will be partnering with ex-service organisations and community groups to develop a program of fun and interactive activities at a local level.

If you would like to hold an activity, please refer to the VHW Information Kit and Resource Guide. These documents explain what VHW is and provides details of how you can can get involved – whether for the first time or to continue your participation from previous years.
