After careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to stop producing The Male magazine due to the continuous rise in production and distribution costs associated with the magazine, as well as stagnant funding budgets for the past four years.
Although we can no longer produce The Male, we are committed to maintaining a strong presence through our website, social media platforms and professional education opportunities. We will continue to provide high-quality, evidence-based male health content through these channels, while collaborating with trusted information partners and high-risk population groups.
If you’re concerned about the discontinuation of The Male magazine, please reach out to your local Federal Member of Parliament or the Minister for Health and Aged Care, Hon Mark Butler MP, via Twitter (@Mark_Butler_MP) to discuss future funding for men’s health
You can also make a donation to Healthy Male through our donations platform.

The Male features articles on men's reproductive and sexual health. Each issue has a dedicated theme and includes a range of articles, real stories, and valuable information on that theme to help men and boys better understand those conditions that affect them. The magazine includes a dedicated health professional section, with topical research reviews, updates on what's happening in the industry, clinical case studies, and professional development opportunities.

The Male - Issue #9
Unchecked, loneliness has the potential to be one of the critical health issues of our time, and it appears we all are only just realising how big a deal it really is. In this issue, we uncover why loneliness is a problem and how to combat it, how community can play a part in helping people connect and how health professionals can help their patients through social prescribing.
The Male - Issue #8
Conversation is a big part of what we do at Healthy Male, so in this issue we're bringing to light some oft-in-the-dark topics — from the secrecy around sperm donation to shutting down STI stigma. We also dig into how direct-to-consumer genetic testing has changed the landscape for health professionals.
The Male - Issue #7
From communicating with culturally and linguistically diverse communities to prostate cancer care in the country — this edition explores the health challenges facing some of Australia's priority populations and why additional, tailored resources are required for improved care and equitable outcomes.
The Male - Issue #4
This edition focuses on all things sex—from contraception to porn addiction to the effects of heart disease. Other topics include the basics of eating better to making and maintaining connection at every stage of life. We also look at movement as medicine and how it can be used to help prevent and manage chronic disease.
The Male - Issue #3
This edition focuses on prostate health. With one in six men experiencing inflammation of the prostate (prostatitis), nearly all men experiencing benign (non-cancerous) prostate enlargement (benign prostatic hyperplasia) at some stage in their life and an estimated 16,500 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2020. Our articles shed light on these common problems, what to look out for and what men can do to help themselves.

This edition focuses on fertility. Our articles focus on fertility, the journey to fatherhood, the challenges and obstacles men may face and some insights on how men can look after their own health better to make a difference to the health of their babies.
