The average male lifespan is 4 years shorter than females and for this reason, more men are likely to die as a result of injury or suicide. Men often downplay the risks associated with illness and are less likely to see a medical professional. Raising awareness and breaking down barriers is vital to improve men’s health outcomes. Many of the diseases that affect men in the Western world are preventable, with the right medical and health interventions.
Men’s health issues needn’t be ignored, since many illnesses can be treated successfully, if men are willing to consult with the right medical professionals early.
In this presentation, we explore men’s health as a simple and practical solution to maintaining wellbeing, regardless of age and socio-economic background. We simplify and teach men how to take charge of their health through effective principles that improve their day to day quality of life.
