Abstract

The aim of the study. To investigate certain aspects of the state of health of the male population of Ukraine in the period 2014-2021; justify the value of a separate analysis of men's health; to determine the need for personalized accounting of the health status of persons who took part in military operations, in particular men.

Materials and methods. The research materials were official statistical data from the reports of the State Statistics Service, the Center for Medical Statistics of the Central Health Service of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine for 2014–2021, the National Cancer Registry of Ukraine, the Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME, USA) on the global burden of diseases, data individual sociological studies. The female population of Ukraine served as a comparison group.

Results. The dynamics of the state of health of the male population by individual indicators (mortality, average life expectancy, morbidity, disease burden) in recent years compared to the female population were analyzed. It was established that the health of the male population has negative trends and is inferior to the vast majority of the relevant indicators of the health of the female population. In addition, the severe consequences of military operations, men's lack of attention to their own health, particularly reproductive health, and an unhealthy lifestyle significantly worsen the health of the male population. An in-depth study of the health of the male population is needed to understand its specific needs in health care services, to develop prevention, treatment and rehabilitation programs.

Conclusions. Against the background of the deterioration of the health of the male population, especially during the war, it is necessary to provide him with all kinds of support, to improve the quality and availability of various types of medical care, to introduce personalized records of the health of combatants (military and civilians), as well as children of war.
