Does men’s health policy deserve our special attention? (Seminar)

Deakin public health policy seminar: DOES MEN’S HEALTH POLICY DESERVE OUR SPECIAL ATTENTION?

The Deakin public health policy seminar series is targeted at senior researchers, academics and policy makers.

Date: Tuesday 10 June 2014 Time: 12pm for 12.30pm until 2pm (sandwich lunch) Location: Conference Room, Deakin City Centre, Level 3, 550 Bourke Street, Melbourne, Victoria, Panelists: Dr Carol Holden, Tass Mousaferiadis, Dr Daniel Perkins

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?
