Men's Health Braintrust Publishes 'A Framework For Advancing The Overall Health And Wellness Of America's Boys And Men'

WASHINGTON, March 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Men's Health Braintrust, consisting of leading experts from various disciplines, is pleased to unveil its position paper, A Framework for Advancing the Overall Health and Wellness of America's Boys and Men -- the first comprehensive cross-cutting analysis of the health and well-being of men, boys, and their families across the lifespan. This position paper defines needs and issues a call to action with emphasis on minority, low-income, and underserved males. It also recognizes the important role women play in improving the health and well-being of men and boys. You can access and download the paper at the following link www.menshealthnetwork.org/library/Dialogue1.pdf.

"Over 21 million men aged 18 to 64 lack health insurance, and even among those who have insurance, boys and men do not engage in health care and wellness services as early or consistently as they need to," said Salvatore J. Giorgianni, Jr., PharmD, Chair, Men's Health Caucus Constituency of the American Public Health Association and Science Advisor, Men's Health Network, and lead author of the paper. "This lack of engagement has had a dramatic sociological impact on the overall health of Americans. The lack of initiatives and public policies to address the needs of boys and men costs our system of care an estimated $148.7 billion annually, and impacts businesses, communities and families."

This position paper will serve as a resource for practitioners, community health workers, policymakers, researchers, public health professionals, and others who are searching for ways to improve the health and well-being of men, boys, and their families. It sets out a bold agenda to reverse the deteriorating health of the American male, and emphasizes the importance of reaching out to men and boys when implementing the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
