The catalyst for a developed and safe nation stems from a healthy society and harmonious family institutions. The health of a family depends on the health of every member in the family; hence male and female health are equally important. It is established that men have poorer health than women and are exposed to a variety of health risks. This is a growing concern globally and locally. In Malaysia, the life expectancy of males is shorter than women by five to six years, while premature deaths among men between the ages of 15-65 years is twice that of women.
