Men’s health is more than all that is not women’s health. This is being recognized more and more across the world in clinical and academic settings. Future directions include the continued and growing recognition of the specific concerns of men regarding their health and their higher rates of mortality than women. Developments such as genetic testing to quantify individual risk for disease and increasing acceptance among men of the need to seek medical care will lead to a decrease in the gender disparities in health. Men have much to learn from women in terms of advocacy, openness to complementary approaches to wellness and help-seeking. Wellness plans with specific objectives are one approach to engage men in their own health future.
