By taking control of your own health, you can catch small issues before they become big problems
Significant health problems such as high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, prostate cancer, testicular cancer, infertility, colon cancer and depression, could be detected and treated more effectively if men’s awareness of these problems was greater.
By taking control of your own health, you can catch small issues before they become big problems.
The Man Test — a Foundation 49: Men's Health educational resource, is an easy 15 question quiz designed to start the 'health conversation' with men. When you complete the test, you'll receive a super easy checklist to make your next doctor's appointment a breeze, and plenty of tips to keep you fighting fit.
We encourage all men to take The Man Test, and for a limited time there is an added bonus, a chance to win one of two $1000 Bunnings vouchers.
Foundation 49: Men's Health is a not-for-profit Men's Health Promotion initiative of the Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute.
Our goal is to help Australian men to live longer and healthier lives through public awareness raising and education through each decade of life, with a primary focus on prevention and early detection and by encouraging regular health checks.
We provide current, evidenced based information written by health experts covering the whole range of men’s health issues, we are not diseases specific. We support individual men in the community, groups and organisations who, like us are passionate about improving the health status of Australian men.
