The health of men is an important factor in determining the well being and stability of a community. From a social determinant point of view, fathers/men with unhealthy lifestyles have an adverse impact on families and do little to promote positive youth development. Additionally, men of all races and socio-economic status are less likely to practice good health, visit health care providers, and take care of themselves. If we are to attempt to improve community health, we must direct more focus on men’s health and responsible/positive fathering.
