Aussie men experience different health outcomes to Australian women. They are more likely to engage in risky health behaviours (such as smoking and alcohol intake), and are less likely to get treatment from a GP or other health professionals until a condition or illness is more advanced.
When it comes to arthritis, much more women than men live with arthritis worldwide. However, there are certain types of arthritis that can be more common among men.
