Study team

Ten to Men: The Australian Longitudinal Study on Male Health is being conducted by the Longitudinal and Lifecourse Studies team at the Australian Institute of Family Studies (AIFS) on behalf of the Commonwealth Department of Health (DoH). The team is structured around three main areas of expertise: survey methodology, data management and linkage, and research and analysis.

The Ten to Men Study team is committed to informing the National Male Health Policy which provides findings about male health outcomes to improve programs, services and policies for all Australian men and boys.
