WHAT WE DO
Agent Orange Record
Enough Agent Orange was sprayed to blanket one-fourth of the country.
For decades since the ending of the U.S. war in Vietnam, Agent Orange-Dioxin has been mired in controversy and further complicated by widespread outdated or inaccurate information. Furthermore, major efforts that have attempted to address the many toxic legacies of Agent Orange have been limited in their scope and focus.
A website project, Agent Orange Record was developed with funding from the Ford Foundation to provide an objective and comprehensive account of the toxic legacy of Agent Orange as it impacts Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia, the U.S. and other areas where Dioxin-contaminated herbicides were used, manufactured or stored.
The Agent Orange Record’s mission is to provide accurate and unbiased information in order to inform the public policy community, academics, students, scientists, veterans, their spouses and children of veterans, as well as non-governmental organizations, foundations and the general public about the ongoing health and environmental impacts of Agent Orange and other Dioxin-contaminated herbicides.
In addition to promoting greater understanding, Agent Orange Record aims to foster constructive dialogue on the impacts of these toxic herbicides and help find a solution to their on-going health and environmental effects from the U.S. war in Vietnam and other areas of the world. We thus encourage others to get involved actively in this issue and help organizations already working to address this issue.
