1 IN 2 MEN LIVE WITH A CHRONIC HEALTH CONDITION
3 IN 4 MEN ARE OVERWEIGHT OR OBESE
3 IN 5 MEN WILL DIE PREMATURELY
Men have a lower life expectancy, die more often from preventable causes and are substantially more likely to suicide and participate in self-destructive behaviours than women. With declining mental health and increasing risks of life impacting disease, it is time we came together to address the critical, chronic health conditions affecting Western Australia’s men and boys.
Join West Australian Chief Scientist Professor Peter Klinken and a panel of leading health experts to discuss an integrated model or evidenced based research that will improve the physical, mental, social and emotional well-being of men and boys living in WA.
Western Australian men continue to experience poorer health outcomes than women across almost every indicator of physical and mental health and wellbeing. They are over represented in early death from heart disease, suicide, diabetes and cancer and live with a total disease burden greater than women. Research led by specialists at Fiona Stanley Hospital seeks to integrate an evidenced based platform of mental and physical health to prevent early death and life impacting conditions.
If we do it together, we can make our men and healthier.
