VA will establish a registry for eligible Veterans who may have been exposed to burn pits in Iraq and Afghanistan. The new registry may enhance VA’s ability to monitor the health effects of exposure.
VA is working to meet the one-year time frame for creating the registry as required by a law signed Jan. 10, 2013 (218 KB, PDF).
VA will announce how to sign up once the registry is available. The registry will keep Veterans informed about studies and treatments.
If you are concerned about your exposure, talk to your health care provider or local VA Environmental Health Coordinator. read more w/connection links>>>
