The strategies employed by the MHN will include:
- national educational campaigns to promote public and media awareness of men's health issues and to disseminate vital information on how to prevent disease, violence and addiction
- developing a data collection system that will allow the MHN to act as a national clearinghouse for information about men's health issues
- providing and maintaining an ongoing network of health care providers and services that deal with men's health issues, combined with providing a telephone and mail referral service enabling the MHN effectively to guide men
and boys to the physical and psychological help they need
- working actively with health care providers and agencies to support better government programs on men's health issues and to spotlight the need for adequate funding of research and education on men's health needs.
