With united, sustained action, general practice organisations and practitioners can help stop our men dying or “diseasing” too early
What is it with men’s health? Ten years ago, men’s health nights in pubs were all the go. Now we don’t even have those. There’s the occasional event or TV item, but always a one-off. Women’s health researchers, practitioners and advocates get lots of resources and publicity, and good on ’em. But men are still dying too early from stuff that can be prevented.
