answer text <p>The Government continues to challenge stereotypes that can limit opportunities and cause harm, in health and elsewhere. For example, in the draft Relationships, Sex and Health Education Statutory Guidance, currently under consultation, we make it clear that pupils should have the opportunity to identify positive male role models.</p><p>To help dispel taboos and stigmas among men about their general health, the government is appointing the UK’s first Men’s Health Ambassador. Alongside the work of the first Men’s Health Task and Finish Group, they will help us to identify how to get more men to engage with their health. The group includes behavioural scientists, men’s health campaigners, health experts and academics.</p> more like this
