Special care - Mens health

Australian men are not as healthy as Australian women. Men have a shorter average life expectancy, are more likely to commit suicide and become injured.

The health of Australian males, a report released by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare in June 2011, states that the Australian male life expectancy is 79 years, ranked fourth among OECD countries. Almost half of the Australian male population have had a mental health condition, about one-quarter have a disability and close to one-third have a chronic health condition.

The Australian Government launched the National Male Health Policy in May 2010, to provide a framework for improving the health of men in Australia.

Health service providers are encouraged to reach out to men, in particular men suffering depression, men in rural areas and Aboriginal men. As a result, the number of health services and support organisations aiming to meet the specific health needs and challenges of men are increasing. Some of them are listed in this category.
