Men's Health Policy Center (MHPC) is a public policy resource center, affiliated with Men's Health Network, that enables readers to better understand complex issues and advocate for the health and well being of men and their families.

Our goal is to improve the lives of every person by providing him or her with the tools necessary to make change. MHPC empowers individuals by offering strategies and tools that are helpful in advocating for better men's health. On federal and state levels of government, we offer information about key legislation and government initiatives. MHPC provides coverage of the legislative process, and the impact it will have on men and their families. As a part of that process, MHPC will periodically host letter-writing campaigns for individuals to voice their concern about key issues.
