Men's health is about women's health too

Interesting research published today suggests that hyperactive girls are less likely to be diagnosed than boys. Later in life, these same women may well find their heart disease is less likely to be picked up than hubby's too. Yes, a lack of gender sensitivity cuts both ways in health and it is gender sensitivity rather than 'men first' that underpins all the MHF's policies and projects.

The trouble is that the subtlety of this message is lost on some our our potential partners. They assume that because we have the word men in our title, to work with us would be sexist and discriminatory against women. Both men and women are suffering from this desperate political correctness from organisations who don't understand the politics.
