  • Agent Orange-related diseases and conditions
  • Agent Orange disability compensation
  • Outreach and education for Veterans and health care providers
  • VA’s Vet Centers and counseling

The guide is useful for VA and non-VA health care providers caring for Veteran patients. Veterans and the public also may be interested in the guide to learn more about symptoms and treatment. Go to Agent Orange for information geared to Veterans, including how to apply for VA benefits.
