There’s no denying that the state of men’s health on the island of Ireland is often poor. However, there are things which can be done to change this situation.

Men, themselves, can play a key role in doing this. But their efforts need to be supported by both government policies and service provision which offers men the right things in the right ways.

This manual contains a range of information which can help to improve your health It tries to let you know what the main challenges are and, more importantly, what you can do about them – if you choose to. We promise that it won’t preach at you or nag you It’ll just tell it as it is.

You don’t have to read the whole manual in one sitting. Dip in and out of it whenever you have time. Each section is only a couple of pages long. As it says at the top of this page: ‘Reading this manual can seriously improve your health!’
