International Men’s Health Week
June 10 - June 16
Men’s Health Week was started in the United States by the US Congress in 1994 to heighten awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys.
In Australia, there were small and localised Men’s Health Week events in Victoria and then in New South Wales from about 2000 onwards.
In 2002, the 2nd World Congress Of Men’s Health was held in Vienna and brought together six leading men’s health organisations including MHIRC to run international events in June each year, just before the United States and United Kingdom Father’s Day.
Now, Men’s Health Week provides a platform for challenging and debating key issues in men’s health and to raise the profile of men, their health outcomes and health needs around the country each June.
Men’s Health week celebrates the strengths of men, the contributions they make and the important role they play in society.
