Around the world, men die an average of 6 years earlier than women, and the mortality rate for men is higher than for women in 12 out of 15 leading causes of death. Health outcomes among boys and men are substantially worse than among girls and women. Men engage in riskier behavior, are less likely to practice preventative health measures, and more likely to avoid important screenings.
