The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare has recently stated that men had made up more than half of the injury hospitalisations and 8,700 injury related deaths  in 2021-2022. Injury hospitalisations and deaths include intentional self-harm.

The AIHW had made a link between injury hospitalisations in males as a result of the likelihood of them engaging in risk-taking behaviours.
