Evidence is accruing of associations between male reproductive health disorders and chronic diseases such as coronary heart disease and type 2 diabetes. The links between reproductive health and general health are under-recognised by medical practitioners and the general public. Windows of opportunity exist for a more holistic approach to men s health when men present with reproductive health symptoms (such as erectile dysfunction) or the reproductive implications of chronic disease are recognised. Further men s health research is needed in Australia to guide policy, innovative health promotion, and clinical practice.
