Men’s Health Maintenance
Did you know…?
- There is no complete set of guidelines for maintaining a man’s health
- There is no office of men’s health at the federal level in the U.S. There are only two states that have an office of men’s health. (There is a federal Office of Women’s Health, and 17 states have an office of women’s health.)
- Amount dedicated annually to research on women’s health: $3.8 billion. Amount for men’s health: $0
- Healthy families and healthy communities will be possible only when men’s health, women’s health, and children’s health all receive adequate attention
On April 30th, 2010 in New York City
Noting the lack of a comprehensive set of guidelines for the maintenance of men’s health, the International Society for Men’s Health and the Collins Center for Public Policy organised the Men’s Health Maintenance Consensus Conference in New York City on April 30, 2010.
25 international top experts
This unprecedented meeting brought together 25 of the world’s leading experts in general practice, the medical specialties, and health policy to answer a complex but elemental question: What are the critical components of health maintenance for men? They evaluated the current state of knowledge about men’s health, issuing recommendations for clinical practice, changes in health policy, and future research.
Discuss Men’s Health Maintenance
The Men’s Health Maintenance Consensus Conference is an unprecedented effort to offer the best wisdom in the men’s health field to health practitioners, the public, and policy-makers by establishing medical and behavioral guidelines for comprehensive health for men at every age.
