Death rates for men under the age of 65 are dramatically and consistently higher than for women across most health conditions.
Differences in life expectancies between men and women range from 4.4 in Sweden to a staggering 11.8 years in Latvia.
Many more men die from suicide than women, yet depression is still one of the conditions perceived as a predominantly female issue. In most European countries, suicide alone causes more deaths in young men than road traffic accidents.
European men also experience the vast majority of accidents in the workplace. In the EU 15, they account for more than 94% of related fatalities.
