Men are at high risk for both morbidity and premature mortality from several of the most common serious diseases. Although numerous factors have been identified to explain men’s risk, this study focused on the relationship between lifestyle behaviors, health-related self-stigma and masculine role norms. An age and location stratified sample of 2000 Canadian men completed measures assessing five lifestyle behaviors (smoking, alcohol use, sleep, diet and exercise), a screen for depression, and measures of self-stigma and masculine role norms. The results showed that elements of both health-related self-stigma and masculine role norms were associated with increased risk for being above the clinical threshold for four of the lifestyle behaviors and depression. The most frequent and largest relationships were associated with exercise and depression. The total number of lifestyle behaviors for which participants were above the clinical cut-points was also associated with self-stigma and masculine role norms. These findings demonstrate the importance of health-related self-stigma and masculine role norms as potential barriers to men’s health and well-being.

Worldwide, men have more opportunities, privileges, and power, yet they also have shorter life expectancies than women. Why is this? Why are there stark differences in the burden of disease, quality of life, and length of life amongst men, by race, ethnicity, (dis)ability status, sexual orientation, gender identity, rurality, and national context? Why is this a largely unexplored area of research? Men’s Health Equity is the first volume to describe men’s health equity as a field of study that emerged from gaps in and between research on men’s health and health inequities. This handbook provides a comprehensive review of foundations of the field; summarizes the issues unique to different populations; discusses key frameworks for studying and exploring issues that cut across populations in the United States, Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom, Central America, and South America; and offers strategies for improving the health of key population groups and achieving men’s health equity overall. This book systematically explores the underlying causes of these differences, describes the specific challenges faced by particular groups of men, and offers policy and programmatic strategies to improve the health and well-being of men and pursue men’s health equity. Men’s Health Equity will be the first collection to present the state of the science in this field, its progress, its breadth, and its future. This book is an invaluable resource for scholars, researchers, students, and professionals interested in men’s health equity, men’s health, psychology of men’s health, gender studies, public health, and global health.

Guide «Comment atteindre les hommes de 65 ans et plus?» Tenir compte du genre dans la promotion de la santé des personnes âgées Collecte d’expériences pratiques à l’attention des professionnel-le-s (2019)

« Les hommes vieillissent différemment des femmes. Et leur comportement individuel en matière de santé diffère aussi de celui des femmes à âge égal. Par exemple, les hommes de plus de 65 ans sont sous-représentés dans de nombreux cours axés sur la promotion de la santé des personnes âgées. Il faut cependant se garder de toute généralisation dans ce domaine complexe. Les hommes de plus de 65 ans constituent un groupe extrêmement hétérogène ayant des besoins, des intérêts et des ressources diverses. De nombreux facteurs influencent leur comportement individuel en matière de santé et leurs risques de développer une pathologie, les différences étant particulièrement marquées entre les hommes de la génération du baby-boom et celle précédant la Seconde Guerre mondiale. L’expérience montre qu’en adaptant les offres aux besoins de chaque groupe cible, on peut souvent atteindre un taux supérieur de participation des hommes. De plus, les hommes très âgés et les hommes limités dans leur motricité sont plus ouverts aux offres telles que par exemple des conseils de santé à domicile. Afin de développer des offres de promotion de la santé attrayantes pour les hommes de plus de 65 ans, il est primordial de savoir quels hommes doivent être ciblés. »

The relationship between health literacy and health outcomes among male young adults: exploring confounding effects using decomposition analysis

Objectives
Previous studies indicate substantial correlations between low health literacy and poor health outcomes. However, empirical findings remain inconsistent and are theoretically challenging. In this study, we conceptually place health literacy within an established model of health inequality. Studying multiple pathways, we estimate the associations between health literacy and six health outcomes and decompose these associations with health literacy’s covariates.

Methods
Cross-sectional data from the Young Adult Survey Switzerland was used for the analyses (n = 5959, age = 18–25). Logistic regression and KHB decomposition analyses were applied to estimate health literacy’s coefficients and confounding percentages.

Results
Eleven covariates were associated with health literacy (p < 0.001). Ten covariates reduced the naïve health literacy coefficient when included in the regression models (confounding percentages: 36.7–86.9%). In three out of six models, the confounding effects led to non-significant health literacy coefficients.

Conclusions
We found that health literacy’s associations with health outcomes are confounded by socioeconomic, material, psychosocial, and health-related factors. More investigations on the causal importance of health literacy, respectively, on its potential to health promotion are required.
