needsHighlighting and tackling the issues where men and boys’ needs are unmet

The conversation about gender issues tends to focus on the needs of women and girls, but there are also many gender-specific issues that affect men and boys. These include the high male suicide rate; boys’ educational underachievement; men’s shorter life expectancy and male-specific health issues; the challenges faced by the most marginalised men and boys in society — such as homeless men, boys in care and the high rate of male deaths in custody; as well as male victims of violence, including sexual violence.

We are committed to highlighting these issues and finding ways of meeting these unmet needs in order to improve men and boys’ wellbeing.
