Why Zambia Men Die Young
The third most important book in the history of Zambia is finally here!! Why do Zambian Men die young? Whats the impact of father absence on children? Are our Doctors Lazy? Do Zambian men matter? This book goes beyond teaching Zambian men how to live in the moment and helps them learn how to turn their suffering into peace.Nkole hits the nail on the head as he dissects the problems and offers solutions to men who suffer in silence.
By writing this book, i hope to provide solutions and inspire Zambian Men and Women to take action and realise that many of the health problems that drive Zambian men to an early grave could be prevented or even cured with early medical intervention or a change in life-style.
READ IT IN ALL DEVICES
It is a fact that men in Zambia have a lower life expectancy at birth, and higher death rates during adulthood, than women. Many of the health problems that men face could be prevented, or even cured, with early medical intervention or a change in lifestyle.
However, boys who are brought up to believe that “real men don’t get sick” may see themselves as invulnerable to illness or risk. When they actually fall ill, they may put up with the sickness or seek healthcare only as a last resort. It may be an archaic stereotype, but nagging from women is the main reason for Zambian men to get their health checked out. Popular culture may paint men as the stronger sex, but from the moment a boy is born, his life is more likely than his sister’s to be cut short. Across national and cultural boundaries, men die an average of seven years earlier than women.
Are Zambian men dying younger because they don’t look after themselves and are reluctant to visit the doctor? Many men in Zambia suffer silently with regards to health and social economic issues that affect their wellbeing, and ultimately, this leads them to an early grave. Mortality is non-negotiable. But the number of years you get—not to mention the way you spend them—can, in many ways, be up to you.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
A NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR
I’ve always enjoyed the process and thinking that goes into great writing, and I’ve wanted to write a book since I was in primary school. When I left the industry as an electrical engineer in 2013, I promised myself I would stay engaged and apply my talents in a new way – to topics and issues that would take me from solving engineering problems to driving social impact. Over time, I’ve come to think of myself as a “Civic Engineer” because I am focusing on activities and actions that can positively affect what is happening in our Zambian communities. My hope is that this book provides an interesting combination of compelling story-telling, easy yet robust principles, practical examples, and personal elements that will draw you into my real purpose of writing this book which is to ignite a real conversation and debate around mens health in Zambia.

Zambian Mens Help Line
In a quest to help Zambian men in dealing with depression, suicidal thoughts, alcohol addiction, workplace stress, relationship issues and more; We are glad to announce the launch ZambianMensLine ,a platform and helpline where Zambian men can talk to someone and get help. Our goal is to empower men with the knowledge and support them to take charge of their lives and start feeling better.
In all the clamour to champion the cause of the women, it seems we have collectively failed to protect the interests of the men. With increasing number of men committing suicide, substance abusing, claiming torture by wives, it is perhaps time to pause and re-evaluate the prejudices we harbor because men need help.
For now, men that need help can email massage to: email@example.com . Our professional councilors We are yet to set up a toll free line telephone line and an office where men can come to talk to a councilor.
