Who is Healthy Male?

Healthy Male is a national organisation, established in 2000.

Healthy Male is a provider of information for men’s health. We facilitate action on men’s health in collaboration with others, advocate for change, empower men and boys to prioritise their health, build the capabilities of the health system and workforce, and focus our efforts to close the health and wellbeing gaps in specific groups.

Ultimately, we are working towards our vision of generations of healthy Australian men.

Our aim is to make the information we provide available to everybody, regardless of gender, age, education, sexual orientation, religion or ethnicity. To do this, we collaborate with Australia’s leading researchers, specialists, clinicians and educators to develop information that fills the gaps in men’s health.

Healthy Male is supported by the Australian Government Department of Health.

How do we help Australian men?

At Healthy Male, we provide evidence-based, easy to understand information on male health.

We engage with the Australian public to improve knowledge and understanding of these issues through social media, email newsletters, advertising, our website, and through partnerships with other health organisations.

We also support hundreds of organisations, sporting teams, community groups and Men’s Sheds across Australia, distributing engaging health messages and quality health information.

How do we help health practitioners?

At Healthy Male, we champion an evidence-based approach that encompasses male health and wellbeing issues. Our work helps to fill the gaps in preventive health, health promotion, and education needs.

We aim to enhance the current and future workforce capacity in male health through the development and release of education and training programs for health practitioners.

Additionally, we provide best practice guidelines for professional communities.
