We petition for the establishment of an Office of Mens Health at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. This office would mirror the work of the existing Office of Womens Health, which has helped to save thousands of lives and has improved the lives of many more. Men die 6 years younger than women and suffer higher mortality rates for the top 10 causes of death. The lives of hundreds of thousands of men will continue to be threatened unless immediate action is taken to combat this growing crisis. The Office of Mens Health will coordinate the fragmented mens health awareness, prevention, and research efforts now being conducted by federal and state government. An Office of Mens Health will help our economy and provide needed resources as health care moves to local management.
