Men love physical health tests

31/07/14 . Partners

A new report from Haringey has identified four factors related to why men don't engage with public health services.

They include the suggestion that men prefer to have physical examinations and tests (such as blood tests), as opposed to discussing their problems to the health professional. In other words: we're less frightened of the needle than we are of talking! It's a really interesting report.

 

The Men’s Health Forum need your support

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.
