Australia has done realtively well in formaulating male-specific health policies. Here you'll find them in one place. If you know of others, let us know!
Australia continued to demonstrate its health leadership with the announcement as only the second country worldwide to implement a National Male Health Policy. The policy document pack begins with a discussion of male health issues and the public consultations conducted in its development.
The health and well-being of men (SBEH) is itself an area of study and practice. The men represent 50% of the population and, like any population group, they have unique characteristics and needs. Of course, men are not a homogeneous group and special attention should therefore be paid to those who are more likely to end up in context of vulnerability.
The Namibia Multi-sectoral HIV/AIDS response is aligned to the 90-90-90 Fast-Track strategy in order to achieve the 2020 targets and end AIDS by 2030. The 90-90-90 targets require that at least 90% of PLHIV know their HIV status, at least 90% of PLHIV who know their status are on treatment and at least 90% of PLHIV on treatment have suppressed viral loads. The intended goal of the HIV response is a reduction in new HIV infections and AIDS related deaths by 75% by 2022 from 2015 levels and move towards ending AIDS as a public health threat by 2030.
The catalyst for a developed and safe nation stems from a healthy society and harmonious family institutions. The health of a family depends on the health of every member in the family; hence male and female health are equally important. It is established that men have poorer health than women and are exposed to a variety of health risks. This is a growing concern globally and locally. In Malaysia, the life expectancy of males is shorter than women by five to six years, while premature deaths among men between the ages of 15-65 years is twice that of women.
