What is Men’s Health Week??

 

Men’s health week looks to create discussion around current male health issues and how best to solve them through education and changing public health policy & infrastructure.

Why? Because the health status of males in most countries, including Australia, is generally poorer than that of females.

The week places particular emphasis on drawing attention to preventative behaviour around medical issues men are at higher risk of suffering from including:

  • Alcohol – which kills almost 6x more males than females
  • Workforce fatalities – 94% of all workforce fatalities are males
  • Learning disabilities – 70% of learning disabilities are in males
  • Suicide – 75% of suicides are males
  • Skin cancer – 67% of skin cancer is found in males
  • Liver cancer – 66.5% of liver disease is found in males

Find the best people to engage with and highlight men’s health and what it means to be healthy.

Planning a Men’s Health Week Event 2021

It’s important to engage a current expert in the relevant field who can provide new research updates and best practices. In addition, it’s rarely possible to find a ‘one-size fits all’ approach for health issues, so having the opportunity for a Q&A or a bespoke keynote made for your unique situation is a powerful resource for any organisation and the individuals within it.

The History of Men’s Health Week

Originating in the USA in 1994, Men’s Health Week became an international movement in 2002 as a result of a decision made by representatives of major men’s health organisations at the 2nd world congress on men’s health in Vienna.

Currently, Men’s Health Week is often headlined by blue-ribbon wearing for prostate cancer awareness, however promoting positive mental health and lifestyle choices are just as vital.
