It Takes Two: What Sexual Health Means for Men…And What That Means for Women

Compared to women, men are less likely to think about their sexual health – let alone make regular visits to the doctor. However, new research from the Alan Guttmacher Institute shows that reproductive health services should be provided to men, for their own sake. There is also no dispute that men’s sexual health directly affects women.

On March 12, David Landry, Senior Research Associate at the Alan Guttmacher Institute, presented the findings of a new, in-depth examination of men’s health and reproductive health throughout their lives at the latest Emerging Issues in Reproductive Health Briefing. The presentation was followed by a panel discussion of leading experts on men’s sexual health, featuring Freya Sonenstein, Ph.D., Director of Population Studies Center, The Urban Institute; David Bell, M.D., Medical Director of the Young Men’s Clinic, Columbia University; and Nancy Mosher, N.P., President and CEO, Planned Parenthood of Northern New England.
