The mission of the Research Advisory Committee on Gulf War Veterans' Illnesses, according to its charter and the act of Congress that created it, is to make recommendations regarding medical research on Gulf War illnesses by the U.S. government.   The Committee is charged with reviewing previous medical research and other relevant medical knowledge, and with making recommendations for future research.  The charter directs that the fundamental standard against which the Committee should measure research opportunities is whether the research will make a difference to the health of ill veterans.
