Men's Lack Of Representation In Health Research Gets Worse

Ed Bartlett from Men's Health America recently posted that the NIH has released its latest report on gender enrollment in NIH sponsored research, and the results aren't good for men. You can read his posting here. "In Fiscal Year 1994, men represented 44.9% of participants in extramural research, women 51.8%, and the sex of the remaining 3.3% was unknown. By 1997, male participation fell to 37.1%.
Table 2 in the most recent report presents disturbing news: In 1998, male participation dropped to 32.2%
" But Ed also writes that due to the media focus on the election, it is best to hold off on letter writing campaigns and activism until we can expect to get some coverage of the issue.
