Did you know that it was in 2017 that the Department of Health and Human Services released the first-ever Plan d’action ministériel pour la santé et le bien-être des hommes ?

It is within this framework that the Centre Intégré de Santé et de Services Sociaux (CISSS) de la Gaspésie is implementing several actions to promote the health and well-being of men. They are guided by the Gaspésie Regional Action Plan on Men’s Health and Well-Being (PDF, in French). Its 4 objectives are as follows:

  • To better reach the male population through promotion and prevention strategies. This Web site is one of its actions.
  • Adapt services to improve them and meet men’s biopsychosocial needs.
  • Improve understanding of male dynamics and practices adapted to meet men’s biopsychosocial needs.
  • To support regional consultation on men’s health and well-being. The coordination of the Table de concertation sur les réalités masculines GÎM is an example.
