Men's Health

According to the 2020 North Dakota Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System Survey, nearly 1 in 10 men had not seen a doctor in the last five years.

Per the North Dakota Department of Health (NDDoH) Division of Vital Records, the life expectancy for North Dakota men is 7 years less than women, and this gap widens even more for certain populations. Men also have higher rates of death from cancer, diabetes, heart disease and suicide. Between 2017 and 2020 in North Dakota, heart disease was the leading primary cause of death to men; and suicide ranked in the top ten primary causes of death for men.
