Men’s Health Week: It's time to take action
Friday, 12 June · 2 min read

Men, like everyone, have health issues. But some conditions can affect them more commonly than women.

For example, men are more likely to take their own life than women, and they're more prone to cancer in their lifetime.

Middle-aged men are also twice as likely to develop diabetes than women - and twice as likely not to know they have it.

These are only a few conditions that affect men more than women, but it's important that men know more about their increased risk and what they can do about it.

Next week (15 to 21 June) is International Men's Health Week, and we'll be dedicating the Daily Drop-In to men everywhere.

Each day we’ll address 1 key health issue that affects men of all ages -- and explain how to manage or prevent it with self-care.

So whether this applies to yourself, a partner or a loved one, join us to take action together.
