The Male Health Unit is a new unit in the Centre of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, headed by Professor Dallas English. The publication in 2010 of the National Male Health Policy stemmed from a recognition of the need for action to address the disparity in mortality and morbidity between Australian males and females, as well as between groups of males for example, rural compared to urban males. The policy, and supporting reports, noted substantial gaps in the knowledge on male health and called for a concerted effort to build the evidence base on male health to inform policy and program development. The Australian Longitudinal Study on Male Health (Ten to Men) was commissioned in 2011 by the Department of Health as part of that effort.
Ten to Men is the flagship project of the Male Health Unit, around which a program of work is being developed. The Male Health Unit has established strong links with the Australian male health community and with researchers from many fields in population health. The Unit aims to build a national data resource based on Ten to Men to support research into the determinants of male health.
