Differences in Health Based on Gender


  • Men are more likely to get sick from serious health problems that Australian women.

  • Men do not live as long as woman and have higher mortality rates.

  • The poor health status of men is further influenced by the fact that men are more likely to avoid medical treatment or seek treatment at a later stage than women.
