In Scotland, there have been slightly more male deaths than female. In people under 85, 58% of deaths are male.
The proportion of male deaths appears lower in Scotland than in England and Wales which may be the result of the small number of Scots men aged 85+. Women outnumber men two to one in this age group.
It’s tough for men to ask for help but if you don’t ask when you need it, things generally only get worse. Especially during a major pandemic like Covid-19. So we’re asking.
Men appear more likely to get Covid-19 and far, far more likely to die from it. The Men's Health Forum are working hard pushing for more action on this from government, from health professionals and from all of us. Why are men more affected and what can we do about it? We need the data. We need the research. We need the action. Currently we're the only UK charity doing this - please help us.
Here’s our fund-raising page - please chip in if you can.
