Description:

Research commissioned and funded by the Irish Cancer Society, and launched in June 2013.

The emergence of men’s health at a policy level in the Republic of Ireland in recent years is underpinned by a growing awareness and concern about what the policy describes as the ‘burden of ill health’ experienced by men. Cancer represents a significant proportion of this burden. Age standardised incidence and mortality are higher among men compared to women while survival is lower. With an ageing population, projections indicate that between 2005 and 2035 the overall number of invasive cancers is to increase by 213% or 7% annually for men compared to 165% or 6% annually for women.
