An International interdisciplinary scientific and practical on-line conference "Aesthetic health of men" (CHITA-PINSK-DONETSK-LUHANSK-DARKHAN) was held in November 3, 2017. The conference was devoted to Men's World Day.
Men's World Day, held on the first Saturday of November, was established on the proposal of Mikhail Gorbachev and supported by the Vienna City Council, the UN department in Vienna and a number of international organizations.
There is also the International Men's Day, celebrated in November, 19 in Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica, Australia, India, Singapore, USA, Great Britain, Malta as well as by various organizations, including the UN.
Their goals are to draw attention to the problem of gender inequality, to emphasize the positive impact of men on the family and the upbringing of children, and also to note the positive role of men in a society.
According to statistics up to January 1, 2017, there are 4.4 million men in Belarus, what constitutes 46% of the total population. On average the number of women per 1 male is 1.15 in the country , 1.16 - in cities and urban areas, 1.1 - in rural areas. The greatest gender disproportion is observed among elderly aged people. The number of women, aged 60-69, per 1 male comprises 1.5, and at the age of 70 and over, the number of women is 2.5 times bigger than men. According to UNDP estimation, a "natural" difference in the life expectancy of men and women is considered to be within 5 years. There is a significant difference in the life expectancy of men and women in our republic, which accounts for 10-12 years.
Today Belarus as well as many European countries is characterized by a tendency of increasing the average marriage age of men. In 2013 the average marriage age of men was 27 years old but today it is 30 years old. According to the statistics, the proportion of deaths is 10 men to 8 women.
