Who is Healthy Male?
Healthy Male (previously known as Andrology Australia) is a national organisation, established in 2000.
We are 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 take action on their health, build the capabilities of the health system and workforce, and prioritise 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, a print magazine, 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 professionals?
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 professionals.
Additionally, we provide best practice guidelines for professional communities.
