National Men's Health Strategy 2020–2030
This strategy outlines Australia’s national approach to improving the health of men and boys – particularly those at greatest risk of poor health – and to reducing inequities between different groups.
The NSDP makes sure that all men’s sheds in Australia have access to a wide range of resources and support for their particular shed.
We undertook a review to advise and recommend possible enhancements to the Australian Men’s Shed Association’s (AMSA) governance arrangements and Australian Government funding to the men’s shed movement in Australia.
Regional coordinators provide support to men’s sheds in each state and territory in Australia to support men’s access to health information and resources to improve their wellbeing.
