A recent commentary in the Lancet explained that COVID-19 has shined a cruel light on global policy inaction relating to men’s health. Similar sentiments were emphasized in a recent article about COVID-19, equity and men’s health published in the International Journal of Men’s Social and Community Health.
The men’s health community already knows that equity-based men’s health policy approaches are critical. While advocacy of this nature has been evident over the past decade, there has been minimal evidence of action at national and global levels. COVID-19 and the Black Lives Matter movement have both reinforced why ambivalence towards equity and men’s health is no longer an option.
