This document discusses some of the specific reproductive health issues affecting males. It does this by considering evidence from the literature about male reproductive health issues.
What’s in this document?1This document first looks at various issues to do with healthy reproductive behaviours for males:
- Prostate cancer
- Benign prostatic disease
- Erectile dysfunction
- Androgen deficiency
- Optimal health outcomes for males, and
- Equity between groups of males.
- Government action – policies and initiatives.
- Personal action – what males themselves can do.
1 Most of the discussion refers to 'males', but on occasions the term 'men' is used to remain consistent with wording used in research papers. Wherever possible, male data is used but, when not available, data has been used for both males and females for particular population groups or issues where inferences for male health can reasonably be drawn.
