Males are affected by significant rates of illness and disease and their interactions with the prevention and treatment of illness are different from those of females.
This section covers programs and resources that profile resources and programs to address male illnesses and conditions.
For cancer advice and awareness information directed at males, these resources may provide useful guidance.
For individuals and organisations running events or creating awareness about the experiences of men and boys with cancer, it can be useful to have access toresources designed for males.

"A key component of this global initiative has been the support for introducing prostate cancer outcomes registries to monitor patient-reported outcomes and patterns of care."
