Vietnam Veterans' Family Study

The Vietnam Veterans Family Study (VVFS) is the most significant research program ever undertaken by the Australian Government into the health of the families of Australia’s Vietnam veterans.

The study examined the physical, mental and social health of Vietnam veterans and their families, covering a broad range of health outcomes for these people.

Over 27,000 people participated in the studies, including Vietnam veterans, partners and their children. Defence Force personnel of the same era who did not deploy to Vietnam, and their families, participated in the study as a control group.
