IT'S TIME TO FRONT UP ABOUT ERECTION PROBLEMS!

Erectile dysfunction, or ED for short, affects thousands of kiwi men and yet most don't see a healthcare professional about it1. That's a worry, not just because these men might not be enjoying a satisfying sex life, but because ED can be a symptom of a serious underlying health issue. So this year our mission is to get more men fronting up about their ED, understanding what can cause it, who to see about it and how to treat it with Viagra®.

THE SOLUTION
