One in three Australian men don't take their health seriously. We took a look behind the Mo to find out what blokes do (or don't do) when it comes to their health.

What makes Aussie blokes tick?

Sun, sport, BBQs and beaches may be some of the most loved aspects of Aussie living for men but despite this relaxed lifestyle, only one in five (17%) blokes claim they’re at their happiest and healthiest.
The Movember Man Files, an inaugural study by the Movember Foundation, takes a closer look behind the Mo to uncover attitudes and insights into men’s health across the nation – revealing what makes them tick when it comes to their health and what they do (or don’t do) when they get sick.

Jeremy Macvean, Movember’s Asia Pacific Director, said the findings demonstrate there’s still more to be done when it comes to changing the face of men’s health.  
“Five times as many guys do nothing at all about a mental health concern versus a physical one. We want every man across the country to take their health more seriously – mental as well as physical.”

“By taking part in Movember and harnessing the power of the Mo, blokes can start conversations about their health and raise much-needed funds for prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health problems.”
