Aussie males tend to have a poorer level of general health than females.
More males die at every stage of life, males have more accidents, the suicide rate is higher for men and males (both adults and boys) suffer from lifestyle-related health conditions than females at the same age.
Despite this, men don’t go to the doctor as often and there’s a perception they don’t care about their health as much as females.
