Canadian Armed Forces Health Survey (CAFHS) is a cross-sectional survey that collects data in order to provide insight into the current health status of Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) members. The CAFHS is a continuation of a Department of National Defence (DND) survey called the Health and Lifestyle Information Survey (HLIS). The HLIS was a population-based health survey conducted every four to five years by DND-CAF. The HLIS 2013/14 was the fourth survey cycle conducted. Afterwards DND-CAF contracted Statistics Canada to develop and conduct the CAFHS.
