Men’s Health Track

26th November – 10:45 – 12:00 – Session II
Education Track

Setting the Framework for Political Action & Tools to realise this

Many solutions to the social determinants of men’s health rely on the ability of professionals to recognise that men have significant potential to be a health resource rather than just a consumer of health services.

Such a policy calls for a departure from the traditional focus on the ‘deficiencies’ of men with respect to their health. Public debate on men’s health tends to be dominated by negative portrayals of men and masculinity, whereby men are blamed for failing the health services by not attending and for taking risks.

This session will put a lens on policy recommendation to support this area.
