Many diseases could be prevented if men seek health centers frequently, but they are reluctant to seek preventive actions. The alert is the coordinator of the Technical Men's Health Ministry of Health, Edward Schwarz, in open court, on Thursday (16), the Social Affairs Committee (CAS) of the Senate, which dealt with public policies for health man. Schwarz also said that men are dependent on women's health care. Man must realize as subjects of care and rights. Women are always protagonists, help the health of man, but it takes so they can develop self-care, it does not have to depend on his wife, daughters, mother, to take care of their own health.

The head of the Ministry of Health said the goal is to pursue policies and actions that men take care of themselves and seek prevention of serious and chronic diseases. Be careful [with] is not feminine, men care, men care for their children, take care of your health, take care of your friends, your family, and that's what we're trying to bring logic to the system.

One of the main barriers, according to Schwarz, comes from the idea that being a man is to be strong, and that disease is a sign of weakness. Consequently, health services would be directed towards the most vulnerable: children, women and elderly. According to him, health services do not consider man as a subject of care and men do not consider health care as male spaces.

According to the coordinator, men die earlier than women, living up to approximately 70 years of age. Age 20 to 40, the causes of death are accidents, violence and murder, after 40 years, the main factors are strokes, heart attacks and prostate cancer.
