Veterans' Health Activities

Since its inception, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has been

involved in protecting the health of U.S. military personnel and veterans. In fact, CDC

was established to address concerns about malaria among our troops during World War

II. In more recent years, CDC's National Center for Environmental Health (NCEH) has

taken the lead in addressing the health concerns of veterans of the Vietnam War and the

Gulf War, and NCEH is working with the Departments of Defense (DoD) and Veterans

Affairs (VA) to protect the health of our future military forces. NCEH's ongoing and

completed activities in these areas are described below.
