Men's Health Week 2020 - June 15th- June 21st
International Men's Health Week (MHW) runs from Monday 15th until Sunday 21st June. Each year, there is a specific theme. During 2020, Ireland will focus upon 'Restoring the Balance', and everyone is being asked to 'be part of the solution' - as we emerge from, what might be, the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The overall aims of the week are to:
- Heighten awareness of preventable health problems for males of all ages.
- Support men and boys to engage in healthier lifestyle choices / activities.
- Encourage the early detection and treatment of health difficulties in males
MHW gives everyone (health professionals, service providers, sporting bodies, community groups, employers, policy makers, the media, churches, individuals ...) an opportunity to encourage men and boys to take better care of their health and to seek help or treatment at an early stage.
The Men's Health Forum in Ireland (MHFI) coordinates activity on the island of Ireland and cooperates with other Men's Health Fora across Europe, and further afield, to mark this week.
