Did you know that each hour 4 men die from conditions that are potentially preventable? Or that men live on average 5 years less than women? and male suicide is the leading cause of death for men under 44 years of age? - significantly more than the national road toll?

Foundation 49: Men’s Health is a direct response to this health crisis affecting 49% of the population – and is dedicated to improving the health status of all men.

So guys - take action:

  • Find a GP you are happy with
  • Have an annual check up with your GP
  • Know your body and what is normal for you
  • Promptly check out any concerns or health issues with your GP
