There are cancers specific to men, such as testicular and prostate. Each year 80 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer in the Northern Territory (NT).
For Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men in the NT, the effects of generational trauma from being disempowered and through loss of culture are contributing factors to poor health.
Men who are mentally and physically strong have healthy lives, positive personal and professional relationships, and actively contribute to community.
To raise awareness around improving men's health, there needs to be a focus on prevention, including approaches that target the different stages of a man's life.
