Office of Men's Health Bill in the 110th Congress

Senator Mike Crapo and Representatives Vito Fossella and Baron Hill have introduced bills which will establish an Office of Men's Health at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. This office will mirror the work of the existing Office of Women's Health, which has helped to save thousands of women's lives and has improved the lives of many more.

Why do we need an Office of Men's Health?

Alarming statistics show that men's health is at great risk. On average, men die 6 years younger than women and suffer higher mortality rates for the top causes of death. The lives of hundreds of thousands of men will continue to be threatened unless immediate action is taken to combat this growing crisis.  The Office of Men's Health will coordinate the fragmented men's health awareness, prevention, and research efforts now being conducted by federal and state government.

An Office of Men's Health, styled after the Office of Women's Health, will be well placed to coordinate outreach and awareness efforts on the federal and state levels, promote preventative health behaviors, and provide a vehicle whereby researchers on men's health can network and share information and findings.
