South African National Integrated Men’s Health Strategy 2020-2025
The South African National Integrated Men’s Health Strategy 2020-2025 (the Strategy) is a framework for action to work towards the goal that Every South African man and boy is
supported to live a long and healthy life. South African men generally have poor health seeking behaviours and are less likely than women to engage health services across the care
cascade, resulting in adverse clinical outcomes for many preventable illnesses. In addition, the health system misses key opportunities to engage with men who do seek services by not offering comprehensive and integrated services to those men who access services for specific conditions.
The strategy aims to deliver a comprehensive and integrated package of care for men and boys across the life course. The overarching aim of the Strategy is to improve the overall
health and wellbeing of South African men and boys. At the heart of the Strategy are four core objectives and associated actions that are designed to drive meaningful progress
towards the Strategy’s overarching goal.
