In Australia, 25% of men reported multiple chronic conditions. . Male residents of France and Norway reported the lowest amount of multiple conditions at 17%. Whether it's stubbornness, an aversion to appearing weak or vulnerable, or other reasons, men go to the doctor far less than women do. , Authors of study on men's health from The Commonwealth Fund, via ABC News. American men also experience avoidable deaths or deaths before age 75 at a higher rate than any other country. As the United States is the only industrialized nation without access to universal health care. low-income males are less likely to regularly visit a doctor or be able to afford adequate healthcare.
