International best practice tells us that one of the key ways to improve men's access to healthcare is 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 taken into account.
Australia's men's health sector is a world leader in developing innovative, male-friendly approaches to engaging men in health services. This report 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.
There are many different ways to develop male-friendly services. The 10-step-guide provides anyone who is committed to improving the lives and health of men and boys with a set of tried and tested principles that can be applied universally to a general population of men as well as being tailored to the diverse needs and preferences of different populations across Australia.

The Australian Men's Health Forum is calling on the Government to develop a national plan to prevent male suicide.
In a new report published on World Suicide Prevention Day, Thursday 10 September 2020, AMHF says the Government is spending $5 billion a year on mental health services but the money isn’t reaching men at risk of suicide.
The solution, says the report, is for the Government to develop a National Plan to Prevent Male Suicide that directs funding at male-friendly services and gets more men involved in preventing suicide.
