Aussie veterans encouraged to have their say on Pharmaceuticals review

Last week the Australian Government, through its Veterans' Affairs Minister Alan Griffin, encouraged veterans to have their say on the finding of the Consultation Paper for the Review of War Caused Disabilities and Pharmaceutical Costs.

The Review determined that it was not possible to meet the Government’s commitment to directly link veterans’ pharmaceutical use to their war caused disabilities.

“I encourage the veteran community to read the Consultation Paper and carefully consider its findings. It is important that veterans have their say on a preferred way forward and I encourage them to do so by making a submission,” said Griffin.

Submissions for individuals and ex-service organisations are currently open and will close on Friday, 18 June 2010.

Submissions can be made to:
