Better4Men Petition

Do you think Governments across Australia could do a better job for men and boys? We know that:

  • Men die 6 years young than women on average
  • 3 out of 4 suicides are men
  • Boys are 60% less likely to complete Year 12 
  • 3 in 10 new dads experience parental leave discrimination
  • 9 in 10 workplace deaths are men
  • 2 in 3 victims of fatal assaults are men
  • 1 in 4 Australian men are socially isolated
  • Around 2 million Australian men experience economic insecurity 

If you think we can do better for men and boys in Australia then sign our #Better4Men petition today and we'll send you regular news about men's health issues and updates on our #Better4Men campaign.

    If men are pushed aside the society will collapse with no technical progress. Everything we have was designed and created by men. Kill their ingenuity and everyone will suffer.

    Improve men and boys self-esteem. Start by promoting the value of men and boys in society through the media and schools. Second, introduce formalised assertiveness training for boys and girls in the schools. Third, expose men and boys more openly and honestly about the responsibilities of marriage and relationships.

    The whole of Australian society will benefit if men’s wellbeing issues are addressed with equal priority those of women.

    As someone who has been in the health system, Finance department for 30 years, I am very aware of the distinct inequality in health spending for men. It seems for many years spending on HIV-AIDS was considered enough for male health issues.

    Excellent. This campaign is long overdue.

    Much more needs to be done to engage specific groups of men who are currently unengaged in their health. This includes middle-aged blue-collar workers. Low health literacy, a ‘know it all’ attitude, inaccurate views about preventive health and early detection, and a distrust and dislike of the health care system are all factors.
