Examines what is known about the health education needs of young men and reports on two small qualitative studies which explored young men’s perceptions of their health education needs. Suggests that because health education is often designed and delivered by women, it may not take account of those issues that young men deem to be important. In the studies described, the young men interviewed expressed as needs topics which should have been delivered within the school curriculum. Concludes that young men need some guidance on what their health education needs are; otherwise important topics will be omitted. Recommends that in‐service training should be offered to those teaching health education and that this should include skills in working with young men. Calls for more research into this area of education.
