The idea was con- ceived at the second World Congress on Men s Health in Vienna in 2002. Delegates agreed to use the week to promote men s health and to encourage insti- tutions to develop health policies and services to meet men s specific needs. Did you know that each year in New Zea- land, more men than women die prematurely from cancer, heart dis- ease, diabetes, transport accidents, and suicide? For Maori men the tale is even worse. They die at a rate almost twice that of non-Maori for lung cancer, diabetes and heart disease. While there are many theories about these statistics, one thing is for sure -- things need to change to turn them around. One area we can look at is making primary health care more access- ible for men rather than waiting until they are so sick they need to go to hospital, chief executive of the Cancer Society Dalton Kelly says. This may mean using some imagination, for example around the opening hours of GPs. Some practices are start- ing to do this and while we have been saying this for some years now, the stats tell us not much has changed, he says. One area the Cancer Society is working to support is healthy places for men at work. The work environment is where men spend most of their day and so it is an ideal place to start mak- ing positive changes. Dalton says, The society is developing a CanWork programme which is well underway. The project has been made possible by the funds raised through Movember . It s hoped that by encouraging men, and women, to look at mak- ing some healthy lifestyle changes while at work we can make a dent in the statistics. We are not into mak- ing well people sick, he says. We don t want everyone running off to their doctor at the slightest twinge! Unless of course they are at high risk for developing some health problems then a conversation with a GP is a good idea. What we would like to see is people being supported to make some lifestyle changes now that will impact on their health as they get older. And if they do have a problem -- something that s not right and has lasted for a couple of weeks -- then they should not keep waiting to see if it goes away. Go get some good medical advice -- and that doesn t mean you ask your mates! Ace Dental: Affordable, gentle dentistry Ace Dental: Dr Bhalajhi Iyyer offers the full range of dental care. Regular visits to the den- tist are essential to maintaining the health of your teeth -- and healthy teeth are import- ant to your overall health and well being.
