Rwanda

This report presents the findings of the Rwanda Deployment Health Study, a Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) funded study conducted by the Centre for Australian Military and Veterans’ Health (CAMVH).

The purpose of the study was to determine the health and compensation history of veterans of the Rwanda deployment (Operation TAMAR [Troops and Medical Aid Rwanda], hereafter Op TAMAR) and differences between subgroups of the cohort.

The aims of the study are to increase understanding of contemporary veterans’ longterm health and compensation and provide insights into the use of existing data to research veterans’ health.

The study collected, reconciled, developed and conducted exploratory analysis of data from Defence personnel and medical records, DVA compensation datasets and a National Death Index linkage.

CAMVH has produced an accurate nominal roll for the deployment, developed a framework for the extraction and analysis of medical records data and established a mortality study for the cohort.
