Freemasons Foundation Centre for Men's Health
Welcome to the Freemasons Foundation Centre for Men's Health.
The Centre brings together and supports a multidisciplinary network of men's health researchers spanning the three South Australian universities,
the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute, the
CSIRO and health services. This network extends to centres of research excellence nationally and internationally. We aim to advance knowledge
about, and empower men to be partners in, the management of conditions that contribute the most to ill-health, loss of independence and workforce
participation and premature death. In doing so, we aim to reduce the long-standing differences between sexes and between different sub-populations of men, in health and health outcomes.
Why a Partnership with the Freemasons Foundation?
The Freemasons Foundation Centre for Men's Health at the University of Adelaide is an initiative of the Freemasons Foundation. The Foundation is the charitable arm of Freemasons South Australia/Northern Territory and is one of the leading charities supporting men, their families and communities. In keeping with their mission, the Foundation has provided major funding to the Centre since 2007 to allow us to support students and early career scientists to undertake research aimed at improving the health and well-being of men. The history of this key partnership now in it's 10th year was profiled in the February 2017 Freemasons Foundation newsletter.
