Did you know that the health status of males in most countries, including Australia, is generally poorer than that of females?🤔

Men take their own lives at four times the rate of women (that’s five men a day, on average). Accidents, cancer and heart disease all account for the majority of male deaths. Men are also less frequent visitors to general Practitioners. Men’s Health Week runs from the 15th to the 21st of June. This week provides a platform for challenging and debating key issues in men’s health and to raise the profile of men. It aims to bring awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys. We encourage you to visit menshealthweek.org.au to find out more about Men’s Health Week, and how you can get involved.💙
