Andrology Australia was established with funding from the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing in 2000 and administered by Monash Institute of Medical Research, Monash University.
Andrology Australia will undertake a program of activities that will enhance the reproductive health of males through community and professional education programs and building the evidence-base and research capacity in male reproductive health.
Andrology Australia will undertake those measures that will enhance the reproductive health of males by:
- identifying major issues relating to male reproductive health and associated conditions
- providing information and education to the public and professional communities
- supporting and developing those individuals, communities and organisations with an interest in men’s health
- supporting research that underpins the professional and community education programs
- developing collaborations to optimise the use of financial and human resources.
The targeted areas of male reproductive health currently include:
- prostate disease including prostate cancer
- testicular cancer
- male infertility
- use and abuse of testosterone treatments
- sexual dysfunction including erectile dysfunction (impotence).
