National spokeswoman to tackle men’s health

Filed under: Men's Health — JohnPotter @ 11:59 am

Men’s health issues will get special attention from National, says the party’s new health spokeswoman, Judith Collins.

She has asked associate health spokesman Paul Hutchison to take responsibility for promoting men’s and children’s health, and pharmaceuticals.

There had been no specific men’s health initiatives in the past five years, Judith Collins claimed. Sitting on Parliament’s health select committee for 18 months, she had constantly listened to “women talking about women’s health”.

    If National really wants to help men and their health, best thing for them to do is get the Child Support Act 1991 changed!

  2. Stephen Gee says:

    It will be very interesting indeed to see what if any policy comes out of this new development within National. Between this and John Tamihere there’s been a bit of hot air blown, but where’s the action on Men’s Health?
