This project investigated cancer and mortality outcomes for Vietnam Veterans.

The project created a 2002 update of the Vietnam Era Nominal Roll held at AIHW. The project also drew on the Vietnam Veterans Nominal Roll held at DVA.

AIHW linked information from the Roll to the National Cancer Statistics Clearing House to obtain information on cancer prevalence, and to the NDI to obtain cause of death information.
