Abstract: This special issue of 'Health Sociology Review' focuses on men's health, but adds new concerns to the existing list of health and well-being issues commonly included in men's health, some less familiar even to those working in the field. Such an addition to the men's health agenda is timely, as the Australian Government released its first 'National Male Health Policy: Building on the Strengths of Australian Males' in 2010, followed soon thereafter by the 'Victorian State Government's Men's Health and Well-being Strategy, 2010-2014'. Both documents improve the policy framework for focusing on men's health and create opportunities for more research, for policy and programme development and evaluation, and for medical and allied health professions training programmes to incorporate a men's health perspective.
