$16m for national men’s health policy

Brendan Trembath; 6/5/10

The Federal Government has announced it will invest at least $16 million to improve the health of Australian men. The plan was developed with help not only from health professionals but also from ordinary Australian men. The Government says a large proportion of the new money will help fund a two-decade-long study into how to improve the length and quality of men’s lives. Australian men have a high life expectancy – among the highest in the world – but the Government is aiming higher.
