Here at the Jervis Bay Hearing Centre, we care about Men's health and are committed to helping men not only stay on-top of their hearing health, but to make sure they are happy & healthy, and are living their best lives!
All this emphasis on the health of boys and men - what's that about? They're alright, aren't they?
In many cases, the answer is no.
A boy born in Australia in 2010 has a life expectancy of 78.0 years while a baby girl born at the same time could expect to live to 82.3 years old. Right from the start, boys suffer more illness, more accidents and die earlier than their female counterparts.
Men's Health Month has a direct focus on the health impacts of men's and boys' environments. It serves to ask two questions:
- What factors in men's and boy's environments contribute to the status of male health as indicated in the table above?
- How can we turn that around and create positive environments in men's and boy's lives?
