Description:
Ireland became the first country in the world to publish a National Men’s Health Policy [NMHP] in 2009 and has been to the forefront, internationally, in advancing men’s health at a research, policy and advocacy level. Underpinning its approach to men’s health policy development and implementation has been an explicit focus on gender-specific strategies related to community engagement, capacity building, partnership and sustainability. Much of the work to date has revolved around excellent partnerships between the statutory, community/voluntary and academic sectors, resulting in a strong evidence base. Although ostensibly a men’s ‘health’ policy, the Policy has had an explicit focus on mainstreaming men’s health across a broad spectrum of policy areas (within and outside of health) and contributing to more effective implementation of other policy areas. There remains a strong rationale for maintaining a specific focus on men’s health. This is grounded in: continued sex differences in life expectancy and mortality; health inequalities between different subpopulations of men; a substantial body of evidence supporting a gender-specific approach; and the imperative to build on the momentum and key milestones achieved in men’s health over the past ten years. The New Public Sector Equality and Human Rights Duty provides a mandate for maintaining a policy focus on men affected by marginalisation (e.g. Traveller men, ethnic minority men and gay men).
