Space agencies should first undertake Human mission to Mars's little moons before attempting Mars's surface
A human mission to Phobos poses far less risks of astronauts losing their lives than a human mission to the surface of Mars.
Almost all attempts of landing launch rockets on planets that inherit significant gravity are failing catastrophically. Even when they do not carry fuel for relaunching it again afterwards.

Humans demonstrated they can safely land and relaunch spacecraft from low gravity moons like Phobos or Deimos in the past when they landed Human-inhabited spacecraft on Earth's natural satellite the Moon.
Both are equally long missions, and the risk to life in space travel doesn't limit itself to launches and landings.
