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.

    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.
