Veterans' Health Week

Australian government logo Veterans' Health Week

This year Veterans’ Health Week (VHW) will be held from Saturday 22nd to 30th September and the theme is Nutrition.

DVA will partner with ex-service organisations and community groups to organise and participate in fun events that highlight the importance of improving and maintaining good health.

Events based on this year’s theme of Nutrition will help veterans and current serving Australian Defence Force members and their families to eat better and smarter. Good nutrition is essential for an individual’s health at all ages. Eating well plays a key role in reducing the risk of developing a range of chronic health conditions.
