Doctors of the World Doctors of the World provides essential medical care to excluded people at home and abroad while fighting for equal access to healthcare worldwide. Through our 3,000 volunteers we help those affected by war, natural disasters, disease, hunger, poverty or exclusion get the healthcare they need regardless of income of status. Whether it’s providing mental healthcare to Syrian refugees, vaccinating children in Mali, or delivering babies in the DRC we meet the health needs of vulnerable people across the planet. And where possible, we share our skills and training locally so communities stay strong in the long term. We also work with the most marginalised to report on violence, injustice and healthcare barriers wherever we see them. We are part of the Medecins du Monde global network, which delivers over 350 projects in more than 80 countries. In the UK, we run a clinic and advocacy programme in east London staffed by volunteers who provide medical care, information and practical support to excluded people such as vulnerable migrants, sex workers and people with no fixed address.

The state of men’s health is in a crisis. Simply put, men are dying too young.

 

Gender is one of the strongest and most consistent predictors of health and life expectancy. For men, this is not good news. On average, across the world, men die 6 years earlier than women.

 

Moreover, poor mental health affects men more than women: three quarters of suicides are by men. The World Health Organisation estimates that 510,000 men die from suicide globally each year. That’s one every minute.

 

The impact of prostate and testicular cancer on lives is substantial, with prostate cancer being the second most common cancer in men worldwide and the number of cases expected to almost double to 1.7 million cases by 2030.

 

Yet this gender-based inequality in health has received little national, regional or global acknowledgement or attention from health policy-makers or healthcare providers. This is exactly why the Movember Foundation focuses on men’s health. This is why Mo Bros and Mo Sistas from across the globe become a united voice every Movember, bringing vital funding and attention to the hidden men’s health crisis.

 

This is not just an issue for men. In order to tackle the problem and work towards a world where future generations of men are not faced with the same issues as today, we need to take action at both an individual and community level. This means engaging men and women, businesses, sporting groups, community organisations, governments, health policy makers and healthcare providers in the efforts to reduce the current gender inequality in health outcomes.
