• Experience family value
  • Our purpose

    The Defence Health Foundation funds medical research designed to improve the health and wellbeing of serving and ex-serving ADF members and their families.

    The Foundation is a charitable trust and has been awarding research grants annually for this purpose since 2011.

    The Foundation is funded by the not-for-profit, restricted access health insurer, Defence Health Limited. More than $2 million worth of grants have been awarded to date. 

    We have one clear purpose – to invest in medical research designed to benefit the Defence community.
