VA has developed newsletters, guides and other materials for Veterans, the public and health care providers about the health effects of Agent Orange exposure. In addition, at VA's request, the National Academy of Sciences Institute of Medicine produces reports reviewing the research on Agent Orange.
The Agent Orange Review provides information to Veterans and their families concerned about herbicides used in Vietnam or other locations and about VA’s programs to respond to these concerns.
