Healthy Male - Andrology Australia

Healthy Male is a national organisation established to provide evidence-based, easy to understand information on male health.

They engage with the Australian public to improve knowledge and understanding of these issues through social media, email newsletters, a print magazine, advertising, their website, and through partnerships with other health organisations.

Healthy Male is supported by the Australian Government Department of Health.

Vision and mission

Generations of healthy Australian men.

They aim to make the information available to everybody, regardless of gender, age, education, sexual orientation, religion or ethnicity. To do this, they collaborate with Australia’s leading researchers, specialists, clinicians and educators to develop information that fills the gaps in men’s health.

How Healthy Male can help

They facilitate action on men’s health in collaboration with others, advocate for change, empower men and boys to take action on their health, build the capabilities of the health system and workforce, and prioritise efforts to close the health and wellbeing gaps in specific groups.

Healthy Male also supports hundreds of organisations, sporting teams, community groups and Men’s Sheds across Australia, distributing engaging health messages and quality health information.
