Research relating to boys’ and men’s health has been happening in various forms, across multiple disciplines, for decades. Biomedical research on sex-specific men’s health issues has been a dominant feature of this discourse, as have epidemiological and psychological studies that have used sex-disaggregated data to convey disproportionate risks noted among boys and men in relation to a broad range of physical and mental health issues. This century has seen a rapid growth in social scientific scholarship emerging from gender studies, sociology, anthropology and public health disciplines that has offered new insights into a broader array of men’s health issues examining social, cultural, political, and economic determinants of health. This transition has seen an increased focus on multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research approaches, particularly in relation to addressing inequities in men’s health.
