Why a Focussed Agenda on Men’s Health?

Australian men fare poorly when it comes to their health. Compared to women their mortality rate is 1.45x greater and their life expectancy 4.2 years less, a gap that has not improved over decades. This discrepancy is even more marked for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men and those living in rural areas.  Males have, on average, nearly 5 years less equivalent ‘healthy life’ lived than females.
