Global mortality study targets male access to healthcare:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

More should be done to encourage access to health services by men, in order to reduce their high rate of premature death compared to women. So said the UK's Men's Health Forum in response to what is being billed as the first global study of epidemiological data on men and women aged 15-44 years. In most of the 44 countries covered, it found that men were 2.5 times more likely to die in this age group - in the Baltic region (Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania), the proportion is 4.5 times. Cardiovascular disease and malignant neoplasms are cited as the leading healthcare-related causes of this variation. The study appears in the June issue of Journal of Men's Health and Gender.
