In 2001, White16 conducted a scoping study on men’s health for the past Public Health Minister for the United Kingdom. This review was conducted over an intensive 4-week period involving all of the key national stakeholders who were deemed to have an opinion on men’s health, with the chief goal of exploring the “scope” of the problem of men and their health.
