Tailoring health promotion for boys and men: Have you considered the possibilities?

Despite faring better on economic determinants, men have a shorter average life expectancy than women, access health services less frequently, and experience higher mortality rates across many leading causes of death. Recent calls for action on these disparities from public health officials, coupled with growing public interest in movements like Movember, are sparking new momentum around boys’ and men’s health in Canada. This interactive panel will stimulate dialogue and new thinking in the under-discussed area of boys’ and men’s health promotion. Using an engaging presentation format called PechaKucha (http://www.pechakucha.org/), leading researchers and policymakers will illustrate how sex- and gender-based evidence and approaches can be used to tailor interventions to meet the different needs of boys and men. Through interactive discussion, participants will explore assumptions about the needs of boys and men and consider the possibilities for using sex and gender-based approaches to make a difference in their health and wellbeing.

"Powered by PechaKucha" events are one-off events that are separate from regular city-based PechaKucha Nights, and that are usually held as part of festivals and conferences, but can also act as standalone events. These events include presentations that use the PechaKucha 20 images x 20 seconds format."
