International best practice tells us we can improve men's access to healthcare by developing male-friendly services. But what is a male-friendly service?
Clearly, there is no one-size-fits-all-approach that will work for all men and boys. There are differences between groups of men, as well as differences within individual men themselves that need to be considered.
Australia's men's health sector is a world leader in developing innovative, male-friendly approaches to engaging men in health services. Our guide to male-friendly health services honours that tradition and identifies some of the key characteristics that are common to health initiatives that work for men, both in Australia and overseas.
