Abstract: In reducing early mortality of men, and to improve the health of men living in remote communities it was necessary to focus on the key health risks associated with heart disease, diabetes and wellbeing. The aim of the project was to provide men (and adolescent boys) in rural/remote communities with knowledge and understanding of physical and mental health; to increase their awareness of available health and support services; to enhance their ability to access these services; and to promote acceptance of such services within the community. Statistics show that men in remote and rural areas have a lower level of health and access to services across most parameters. Preventative measures and early intervention is a rare activity for these men. The Rural Men’s Health Program targeted the male psyche and endeavoured to reverse the notion that strong men suffer in silence. Men in rural remote communities need to be specifically targeted to attend health promotion sessions and participate in health screening. A specifically designed “blokes night out” appeals to men and introduces the importance of health screening and values improved health behaviour through medical and health education follow up.
