Draft Western Australian Men’s Health and Wellbeing Policy

Closed 10 Aug 2018

Opened 28 May 2018

Overview

The draft Western Australian Men’s Health and Wellbeing Policy (the Policy) was developed by the Health Networks Branch, Department of Health Western Australia (WA) to demonstrate the WA health system’s commitment towards achieving the priority areas of the National Male Health Policy: Building on the strengths of Australian males.

The purpose of the Policy is to provide direction to the WA health system and its partners to deliver strategies that improve the physical, mental, social and emotional wellbeing of men and boys living in WA.

The primary audience of the Policy is the WA health system. However, improvements in men’s health require the involvement of a range of agencies beyond the WA health system working collaboratively to achieve common goals. Therefore, it is recommended that the approaches outlined within the Policy are adopted by multiple agencies.

Why We Are Consulting

A series of community consultations will be occurring between June-July 2018 and provide an opportunity for face-to-face feedback in addition to this online survey. Further information about this will be made available closer to the time.
