Mefloquine Information Paper

I am writing to inform you about an information paper on mefloquine that has been developed by the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA).   

DVA is aware that there is concern among some current and former serving Australian Defence Force (ADF) members about the use of mefloquine in the ADF and potential health impacts.  DVA has developed an information paper to build awareness of the information and support that is available, and how to access it.  

The information paper is attached to this email and will also be uploaded on the DVA website at or view the paper here Mefloquine Information Paper

 You are welcome to circulate this paper to any ADF members who you think may benefit from this information.
