AMERICAN MEDICAL ASSOCIATION HOUSE OF DELEGATES

Resolution: 706

(I-05)
Introduced by: Medical Student Section
Subject: Urging the Establishment of a Federal Office of Men's Health
Referred to: Reference Committee J

(Iffath A. Hoskins, MD, Chair)





Whereas, Despite the medical innovations and advancements over the past century, men in America are getting sick earlier and dying younger than women; and
Whereas, There are Offices of Women’s Health in the following federal government agencies: the United States Department of Health and Human Services, the National Institutes of Health, the National Cancer Institute, the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Food and Drug Administration, and the Health Resources and Services Administration; however, there is not an office of men’s health in the federal government; and
Whereas, Our American Medical Association promotes the idea that health care for men differs in many ways from the health care of women and encourages research and medical education to address: the reasons for why men have a shorter life span, ways to engage men in their health care, and methods to improve access to care for men (AMA Policy H-160.926); therefore be it
RESOLVED, That our American Medical Association promote the establishment of a federal Office of Men’s Health to coordinate outreach and awareness efforts on the federal and state levels, promote preventive health behaviors for men, and provide a vehicle whereby researchers on men's health can collaborate and share information and findings. (Directive to Take Action)

Fiscal Note: Implement accordingly at estimated staff cost of $1,859.
