Adolescent and young adult (AYA) males - those between the ages of 10 and 26 - receive minimal health care; for them health care consists largely of sports physicals and an occasional visit to the emergency room. Yet, according to the most recent data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, AYA males are at higher risk than their female contemporaries for:
death by suicide
certain sexually transmitted infections.
In addition, AYA males are half of the teen unintended pregnancy equation and can pass on undiagnosed STIs to their sexual partners.
If we care about the health of future generations, male and female, we need to start addressing the unmet health care needs of AYA males. The Partnership for Male Youth has been formed to address this issue. The Male Health Toolkit is the Partnership's flagship effort. It is groundbreaking and will serve as the foundation for other project activities to enhance health, and health care delivery, for AYA males. It was developed under the guidance of an expert panel composed of health care providers across a range of disciplines and specialties.
As of July 2014 the Partnership for Male Youth was composed of 23 national health related organizations from a range of medical disciplines and specialties, and representation from six federal agencies charged with promoting the health of our nation's citizens.
This toolkit contains provider checklists, questions for patients, guidelines and clinical practice tools developed my national health care organizations, information on scientific research and literature, and patient and provider education videos. The app contains links to the toolkit, information about the Partnership, and links to social media sites.
