Why do we need an Office of Men's
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

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.
