Mortality and Cancer Incidence in Australian Vietnam Veterans Studies (2005)
The series of studies, commissioned by the Repatriation Commission, was undertaken in response to a recommendation of the 1997 Mortality of Vietnam Veterans: The Veteran Cohort Study, which was to monitor the mortality of Vietnam veterans and repeat the study after 2000.
The first three reports in a series of studies of mortality and cancer incidence in Australian Vietnam veterans were released on September 5th 2006.
The reports were produced by the Department of Veterans’ Affairs with the assistance of the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare.
A fourth report in the series was released on 26 September 2007.
Each of the four completed reports can stand alone as a complete study. However, the first three volumes should be taken together for a more thorough understanding of the mortality and cancer incidence of this cohort of Australian Vietnam veterans and an Overarching Executive Summary has been produced to assist in understanding . The fourth volume investigates a specific aspect of Vietnam service, that is the exposure to an anti-malarial drug, Dapsone.
The reports and their overarching summary are available at Overarching Executive Summary.
