About the Million Veteran Program
Making a significant impact on health research
MVP researchers use genetic, health, lifestyle, and military background information to understand how genes affect health and illness. Understanding differences in our genes can help explain why some people get diseases and respond to certain treatments while others don’t. This can also help health care providers offer better preventative care and treatments of illnesses and disease.
Individual genetic information is not currently returned to our MVP partners. However, Veterans, families, and their providers can use findings from MVP to make important health care decisions.
Thanks to our Veteran partners, MVP is on the cutting-edge of genetic research. Read more about MVP's scientific discoveries today.
Women Veterans in research
Historically, women have been underrepresented in biological and medical research. This makes it difficult to ensure new treatments, screenings and other medical breakthroughs work just as well for women as they do for men.
VA's Million Veteran Program (MVP) is working to change that. Women make up about 9% of more than 875,000 MVP enrollees. By enrolling in MVP, you help ensure women aren't left out of medical research that could potentially improve or save the lives of fellow women Veterans.
