Does men’s health policy deserve our special attention? Despite poorer health outcomes and lower health service engagement there are few specific initiatives focusing on men’s health. Why do men not access healthcare more regularly and should health services do more to improve the engagement of men? Alternatively, why is there a need to focus on men’s health policy separately when the health care system cares predominately for male focussed diseases and chronic conditions?
