Health and wellbeing > Men’s health
Globally, men die on average six years earlier than women and for reasons that are largely preventable. Which means that it doesn’t have to be that way: we can all take action to live healthier, happier and longer lives.
This page provides information, videos and wider resources around men’s health and is inclusive of gender diverse people.
For support, information and resources around other areas of colleague health and wellbeing, please visit our health and wellbeing home page or use the quick links section further down this page.
