JUNE 15 - 21: "Take Action on COVID-19"

 
 

International Men's Health Week is an international week celebrated in several countries the week preceding and including Father's Day to focus on issues facing men's health

In 2002, six men's health organizations around the world met in a meeting organized by Men's Health Network at the 2nd World Congress on Men's Health in Vienna, Austria and resolved to work together to launch International Men's Health Week (IMHW).

According to the Society for Men's Health and Gender, the five main points of the Vienna Declaration are:

  • Recognizing men's health is a critical issue and that there are health issues which only affect men.

  • Promoting awareness of men's approach to health

  • Changing the way health care is provided to be more sensitive towards men's needs

  • Creating school and community programs which target boys and young men

  • Connecting health and social policies to better pursue men's health goals
