The average life expectancy in Mongolia has risen by 7.4 years since 1990s, now reaching an average 70.2 years. This information was reported in the ‘Gender Baseline Survey Report-2020. The survey was released jointly by the National Committee on Gender Equality and National Statistical Office of Mongolia.
This is no real surprise; however, the report reveals some interesting – and worrying – details. One of the statistical characteristics is the fact that Mongolian women live significantly longer than men. According to the report, the average life expectancy for men rose from 60.7 to 66.1, while the life expectancy of women rose from 64.9 to 75.8 over the past 26 years.
There have been a few specific surveys on the state of men’s health and disease prevention awareness. Therefore, the study focused on determining the reasons for the gap between male and female average life expectancy, as well as on men’s attitudes and awareness of the importance of protecting their health.
