Men's Health Week 15th-21st June

Between 15th-21st June the world observes Men’s Health Week. This is a unique opportunity to raise awareness around the health issues that affect men and focuses on getting men to become aware of problems that they may have and gain the courage to do something about it. Did you know that one in five men die before the age of 65? Let's try to change that!

Each year, Men’s Health Week becomes bigger and more well-known, so if you’re a man that wants to do more, or a someone that wants to inform a man you love, then get spreading the word. The better known the week becomes, the more men will feel like it’s OK to talk about their health issues and not just push them to the side and ignore their health concerns away! 

Last year the theme was Diabetes, the theme for Men's Health Week 2020 is 'Take Action on Covid-19'. This theme looks at what we can all do to prevent the virus doing more damage and to inform men on how to take action to

  • avoid spreading the virus

  • get the best out of lockdown and the 'new normall

  • beat 'underlying conditions'.
