International Men’s Health Week will run from Monday 15th until Sunday 21st June 2020
The aims of Men’s Health 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.
Men’s Health Week 2020 will also take place against a backdrop of the Coronavirus / COVID-19 pandemic. Worldwide, this virus is having a major and disproportionate impact upon men. It has caused uncertainty, disruption and a sense of fear for many of us. For others, it has had even more devastating consequences. These are really challenging times.
Despite this, the past few months have also shown us the best side of males – when the vast majority have answered the call and did their bit to ‘flatten the curve’, offer practical help to others, home-school their children, strengthen community spirit, show positive leadership, help to keep essential services running, and protect vulnerable people. We should celebrate this contribution.
