Men’s health

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

This unit of study examines the historical, social, economic and cultural influences on men’s health. Themes explored include the epidemiology of men’s health and the historical events and cultural contexts that have shaped men and their roles in contemporary society. Students analyse popular stereotypes and examine their own values and attitudes in relation to these stereotypes. Students examine the effects of men’s lifespan transitions and the physical, emotional and psychological development of men in relationship to health issues. The last two themes examine health promotion, in particular, communication and men, and capacity building. Throughout the unit of study policies, legislation and service provision models that impact on men’s health are examined.
