Men's Health Week 2024

Men’s Health Week is dedicated to promoting physical and mental health awareness of men and boys. It takes place from Monday 10th of June to Sunday 16th of June (Father’s Day).

Men’s Health Week has three key objectives:
  •  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.
Statistics show that males have higher death rates than females for almost all the leading causes of death at all ages. In light of this, the theme for this year is ‘Know Your Numbers’ with the key message that Men’s Health Counts.

Did You Know?

Check out these interesting facts & figures about men's health:

  • Males often present themselves too late to health services which can lead to a large number of problems becoming untreatable.
  • In 2022, 23% of males were overweight and 40% of males were obese.
